Sacred Arts Tour

Drumming Circle and Peace Puja at the Aquatorium!

Marquette Park Aquatorium

Bring your drum, cymbal or other percussion instrument and join your friends and family at this intergenerational, family friendly cultural experience.

The monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery will lead us all in their cultural experience with a peace puja and drum circle. Everyone is invited to join in – the more the merrier!

A $10 donation per person is greatly appreciated to help with the costs of housing feeding and transportation for the over 2000 monks who are exiled from their home in Tibet and now live in a monastery in India.

The monks from the Drepung Gomang monestary are returning to Miller Beach for the 4th year. Events will be taking place all week.
