Their mission: “to share and preserve Tibetan culture
which artfully overflows with spirituality, compassion and beauty.”
On Jan 16th the Tibetan Monks from the Drepang Gomang Monastery created a World Peace Mandala at St James the Fisherman Episcopal Church (87500 Overseas Hwy) in Islamorada.
Many thanks to Frank Sheen, Father Tom Graf, Denise Downing, and Nancy Joe (and all the volunteers—KTP and St James Church) for a successful visit.
