Monks share Tibetan culture through teachings, performances and food

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Eight Tibetan Buddhist monks made the trip halfway across the globe to West Lafayette to share Tibet’s unique culture through religious performances, chants and teachings.

Geshe Yonden Gyatso and Tsultrim Dorje are from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India, and they visited News 18 This Morning to give our viewers more insight into their mission.

“[We would like to] share peace with all human beings, share sympathy and prayer with all human beings…share Tibet’s civilization,” Dorje said.

You can join the monks and taste their culture on Saturday, Sept. 6 for a Taste of Tibet at Unitarian Universalist Church. The church is located at 333 Meridian St. in West Lafayette. Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. Click here for more information.
