Mystic Tibet

Stupid Tourist Saturday!

My folks came into Chicago this for the week and so I drove up to see them, Gram and Auntie. We went to the MVCC and took in a presentation of the Mystical Arts of Tibet.

Still suffering under communist rule of China, Tibet is continuing its pacifist revolution of public goodwill tours. The "Free Tibet" campaign was all the rage in Hollywood several years ago but little has changed for the human rights.

These traveling monks represent a relocated monestary that is responsible for the ongoing world tours. They demonstrate Buddhist ceremonies including music, dance, debate and prayer.

I am still not a huge fan of Asian music but it was a good presentation for insight into Buddhist culture.
