Drepung Monks

The Drepung Monks came all the way from Tibet for Sunday morning at the Bluegrass Festival. The Drepung monastery was one of only a dozen monasteries to survive the Chinese Communist takeover of Tibet in 1959.

Those Monks visited the art museum in the buiilding where I work several years ago and it was fascinating watching them work on their sand painting! I couldn't believe they destroyed it when they were done, but I guess that's part of the demonstration.

How interesting that the Tibetan monks travel and appear at festivals. I like their yellow headdresses.
