Tibetan Monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery will visit the San Marcos Public Library on Monday, January 28 at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to meet the monks and find out more about their lives and work. The library is pleased to be a part of the 2012-2013 Common Experience events in conjunction with Texas State University.
To begin their week-long visit, the monks will stage an opening ceremony before beginning a Mandala Sand Painting near the LBJ Student Center at noon on January 28. The Mandala Sand Painting, a work of sacred art, will be created during their week-long visit. The Mandala is to be completed on February 1 and events will culminate in a ceremonial procession to Sewell Park to offer some of the sacred sand to the San Marcos River.
