Buddhist sand mandala creation with Karma Lhatrul Rinpoche
Join Karma Lhatrul Rinpoche, a Bhutanese yogi in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, as he creates a sand mandala in the Museum’s Great Court to celebrate the Tantra exhibition.
A mandala is a sacred configuration of geometric symbols which evokes the spirit of a teaching or divinity. At the centre of this particular mandala will be Tantric deity Vajrayogini, the ‘queen of enlightened wisdom’.
The construction will begin with a healing Chöd ceremony to consecrate the space and will include teaching by Karma Lhatrul himself.
Presented as part of London Craft Week 2020.
This event is presented in partnership with British Museum’s Tantra: enlightenment to revolution exhibition, supported by the Bagri Foundation.
