Lama dance and sand mandalas
In order to raise funds for their monastery,
seven monks from Gajang Tsawa Khamtsen of the Ganden monastery visited several European countries, under which
the Netherlands in 2005 and 2008.
The monks created a series of
traditional sand-mandalas and gave lama dance performances in a number
of cities. The entire organisation of the tour was done by volunteers
of the Dhonden Foundation. The tour was a success in all respects; visitors
were very pleased and the monks were able to raise important funds for Ganden Jangtse monastery.
