The Gyuto Monks of Tibet had the official opening of their stay in Fremantle at the Townhall last night with inspiring and soul moving chanting and the start of a sand Mandala.
Noongar elder Richard Walley gave a welcome to country.
It is always special when the monks are in town even when one isn’t a Buddhist.
They will be here for over a week so check out the program on the Facebook page, or scroll down on this blog to “older posts” and find out what is on.
The delightful Buddhist Gyuto Monks of Tibet played a cricket match for the Divinity Cup against the motley mob of Clancy’s Fish Pub on Sunday morning and it was a lot of fun.
There were even a few among the lot of them who did not chuck and could actually hit and catch the ball. ; >)
