Monks frequently visit the Crystal Castle and once again they are here to bless us with their presence. This a wonderful opportunity to engage in their culture, feel the energy and find spiritual guidance.

The Crystal Castle is often described as a sacred space, and when the Monks visit… well it’s just absolutely divine!

From Thursday 7th of October through to Wednesday 13th of October the GYUTO MONKS OF TIBET come to the Crystal Castle for Seven Days of Joy… Om Dhum Soha- Life is Wonderful

During this visit the Gyuto monks will create a 1 square metre Spring Mandala of Peace celebrating the wonders of life, and the monks will also be offering a comprehensive program for both adults and children… see the timetable below.

Come for daily morning meditations, cultural displays and workshops especially for kids, meditation classes, tantric art activities, Jab Khru healing ceremonies and Buddhist talks.
