Tibetan inspiration on show at museum

2015-07-07 06:01

Join in celebrating the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama and the fifth anniversary of showing thought-provoking films at the Simon’s Town Museum.

Five years ago, six lamas from Lhadak created an exquisite sand mandala at the Sophea Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse. In partnership some Tibetan films were screened at the Simon’s Town Museum.

This was the start of the popular ‘exploring consciousness’ screenings.

The Museum will celebrate with a screening of five films. A hymn of praise by Martin Scorcese will be screened on Thursday 2 July at 11:00. Road to peace – Ancient wisdom of the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet will be screened on Monday 6 July at 10:15. Two mischievous friends will be screened on the same day at 14:00. 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama will be screened on Thursday 9 July at 11:00. Sunrise Sunset – 24 hours in the life of the Dalai Lama will be shown on the same day at 14:00.
