Tibet Week 2023 kicks off with celebration

Tibet Week 2023 began Monday, Nov. 6, with a partnership renewal between Emory University and the Drepung Loseling Monastery followed by an opening ceremony in the Michael C. Carlos Museum’s Ackerman Hall. The renewal ceremony marks 25 years of the partnership.

The week’s opening ceremony followed, with traditional Tibetan music and chants by the Drepung Loseling Monks of the Mystical Arts of Tibet. Then, the monks began to lay the blueprint for the sand mandala that will be worked on throughout the week.  

Anyone can watch the mandala construction or join other activities through Saturday.
