The Mystical Arts of Tibet

Location:

Dublin

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music, Other
Organization: Dublin Arts Council
Description: The 2018 Multicultural B.R.E.A.D! Festival of Arts and Community will include The Mystical Arts of Tibet featuring the Monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery constructing a Mandala Sand Painting in the Coffman Park Pavilion from Oct. 10 through Oct. 14. Millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into place in this spiritual art form in order to purify and heal the environment and its inhabitants. The public is invited to an opening ceremony including chants, music and mantra recitation to consecrate the site, at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The mandala is dismantled shortly after its conclusion, symbolizing impermanence and change. The closing ceremony, which begins on Sunday, Oct, 14 at 7:30 p.m., includes disbursement of sand to members of the audience as blessings, and a procession with dispersal of the mandala sand into a nearby stream to share the healing energies of the mandala throughout the world. The dispersal practice is environmentally safe, according to the EPA.

The public is welcome to visit the Pavilion during the construction to watch the monks at work, Oct. 10 from 12 to 6 p.m., Oct. 11-13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Oct. 14 during the B.R.E.A.D! Festival from 12 to 9 p.m. An interpreter will be available to answer questions. For more information, visit https://www.mysticalartsoftibet.org/ and http://www.drepung.org/
