The performances of the Compassionate Mandala Tour include the famed multi-phonic chanting, fascinating monastic ritual dances and the extraordinary voice and sounds of Tenzin Choegyal.

Best of all, the Compassionate Mandala Tour will be raising funds for the exiled Tashi Lhunpo monks and the Tibetan Children's Village.

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery is seat of the Panchen Lama, the second most important spiritual leader of Tibet and was founded by His Holiness the First Dalai Lama in 1447. The Communist Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959 and the subsequent Cultural Revolution wreaked havoc on the monastery which lost many precious scriptures, statues and images. Many monks were killed or imprisoned and those who remained could not practice their religion freely. In 1972, under the patronage of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tashi Lhunpo Monastery was re-established in the Southern Indian state of Karnataka and over 250 monks now live and study there in exile.
