Tibetan Cultural Pageant

7:00pm - 8:30pm CDT October 2, 2014

Lake Forest College President Steve Schutt welcomes the community to the Tibetan cultural pageant. Monks perform traditional Tibetan folk dances, music, Central Asian throat-singing, and their dramatic choreographed debating style.

A group of Tibetan monks will be on campus for four days to create a Tibetan Buddhist Sand Mandala starting on Sept. 30 through Oct. 4 in the Center for Chicago Programs.

This four day ritual involves art, music, and performance – and is done in a public place where people can observe the process that is understood to bring healing and peace.

This religious ritual has been performed at museums, churches, and universities throughout the country. In the Chicago area, sand mandalas have been created by groups of monks at Navy Pier, University of Chicago, Notre Dame University, and the Lake Street Church in Evanston, among other places.
