The Power of Compassion: Masked Dance and Sacred Tibetan Chant - Prices: Adult £20pp/ Child (5 - 15yrs) £10pp

Tibetan Buddhist Monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery appear at St Andrews as they visit the UK on their 50th Anniversary Tour, opening a magical window on to a world of reincarnation and mysticism.

From mesmerising Buddhist chants to swirling masked dances in ceremonial costumes and accompanied by the sound of ancient Tantric musical instruments, the monks evoke the atmosphere of sacred Tibet. The performance includes spoken explanations of the significance and stories behind the dances and prayers, providing a fascinating glimpse into an ancient cultural tradition far removed from modern Western society.
