Santa Monica : Tibetan Monks to Perform

April 29, 1993

Eleven exiled Tibetan Buddhist monks will perform ancient dances, chants and healing rituals at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the John Adams Middle School auditorium.

The monks are from the 600-year-old Ganden Shartse Monastery, once one of the largest and most important monasteries in Tibet. It was one of thousands of monasteries destroyed by Chinese invaders in the early 1950s.

Some of the monks who fled the invasion re-established the Ganden Shartse monastery in southern India in the 1960s. Today it has more than 600 resident Tibetan scholars, students and administrators.

Tickets for Saturday's performance, available at the door, are $10. Adams Middle School is at 2425 16th St.
