Six Tibetan Buddhist monks will come through Telluride this weekend, July 23-25, on their biennial summer tour through the US. They are all set to tell us about the Buddhist view on Unity and Peace on Friday, about Karma on Saturday morning, and help us purify our karma in a ritual on Saturday afternoon. They will chant and play their exotic instruments on the terrace of the library on Sunday morning. They will also teach us how to sit. Sit in meditation, that is. For more info check out the posters around town or visit the monks’ website: http://www.gadenshartsetour.org/. Click on “tour schedule” and the Telluride events will come right up.
