Esplanade Presents | A Tapestry of Sacred Music


Call of the Dawn: Tibetan Buddhist Chants

Mangtro Monastery, Ladakh (India)
22 Apr 2018Sun
Esplanade Concourse

The picturesque Mangtro (Matho) Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist institution perched on a hill in Ladakh, overlooking what some call “the Last Shangri-la”. Established in 1410, the remote monastery is a place of great cultural and spiritual significance. It carries a tradition of masked dances, oracle festivities and ceremonies, performed against the backdrop of the snowy Himalayan peaks.

We bring you a rare opportunity to experience the aural soundscape of this historic monastery. Led by HE Dagpo Shabdrung Rinpoche, the monks from the Mangtro Monastery will begin the day with Tibetan Buddhist chants.
