4pm Dance

Dance as a spiritual practice dominates the ancient and rarely seen transformation rituals to be performed by Prajwal Ratna Vajrachara of Nepal. Traditionally executed only by Vajrayana Buddhist priests as part of their meditations, those rituals invoke Tantric deities--Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara, Vajrayogini, or Vajrapani--who are described in the accompanying songs. Union with the divine is the dancer's ultimate goal, as in many religious rites worldwide, but the images here are unique to the Charya Nirtya idiom of the Katmandu Valley.

Prajwal Ratna Vajrachara, Pacific Asia Museum, 46 N. Los Robles Ave., Pasadena. 4 p.m. $9 to $12. (626) 449-2742.
