Help Crowd-Fund This New Stargate!

Visiting Gaden Shartse Monks to Create a Vajrasattva Sand Mandala During ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival at Boulder

 Crowd-Funding Detils Here:
September 13 – 17, 2017 • Boulder Public Library, Canyon Gallery, 1001 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder, CO 80302

All the events will be free of charge and open to the public.

A group of monks from the Gaden Shartse Monastic Community in Mungod, India will be in Boulder from September 12 – 19 to create a Sacred Vajrasattva Sand Mandala at the Boulder Public Library. This will be an integral part of the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival at Boulder being held in the library.

They will construct a Buddha Vajrasattva Mandala over the course of five days, giving a Vajrasattva Empowerment on the last day just prior to the Dissolution Ceremony which will include the distribution of Sacralized Sand to those in attendance.

The monks are on a 2 year fundraising tour of the US which is one of the only means of financial support for their Tibetan refugee community in India. While offering the best of their cultural and religious traditions to the communities they visit they provide the opportunity for us to show them our generosity. Learn more on their website,
