We are beginning to offer art workshops at Pema Osel Ling, to take advantage of the many talents of our resident and sangha artists. If you are in the neighborhood, please join us on June 5 as sangha member and sculptor Jim Westbrook demonstrates casting of a small bust or mask in epoxy resin with a bronze powder face coat. This is a rare opportunity to be taught by someone who uses the process in his own work. Jim has worked with us on many of our projects, including the large-scale casting of relief ornamentation in concrete for our Dorje Drolo stupa.

Sacred Dances 

 

Lingdro Dances 2014

Tibetan secular history was preserved and passed on from generation to generation through ritualized dances which were told through song, dance and music. The Lingdro is a most famous and historical work from the Biography of King Gesar the Great Lion: 'The Awe Inspired Laughter of the Dance of Ling, A Symphony of Ecstasy' revealed by Mipham Rinpoche as a pure vision terma. It was revised and expanded by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. This is an epic poetic song about the 11th century Tibetan King "Gesar of Ling" and his heroic battles against demons. 

 

 

Tibetan and Western dancers performed this epic legend in the traditional manner at Pema Osel Ling, the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual center of the Vajrayana Foundation, in the Santa Cruz Mountains in June 2015. Members of the Vajrayana Foundation who have been trained and skilled in playing the Tibetan musical instruments accompanied the performers.
