 A Tibetan Bazaar will be set up from June 12th to June 16th for the sale of Tibetan handicrafts created by the Tibetan refugee community located in South India refugee settlements.

100% of all proceeds go directly to support, educate, house, feed and clothe the 2000+ refugee monks living at Drepung Gomang Monastery located in Lama Camp #2 of the Tibetan Colony located in Karnataka, India.

The Sacred Art Tour is sponsored by Drepung Gomang Institute, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. It is the official USA seat of Drepung Gomang Monastery. Drepung Gomang Tour members are refugee monks now living at the monastery. The Drepung Gomang Monastery was founded in 1416 near Lhasa, Tibet and its college is the oldest of the four colleges of Drepung. In 1959, before the invasion of Communist China, Drepung Monastery has more than 10,000 monks. Gomang College produced many eminent Buddhist masters and has been a very important Tibetan Buddhist learning center. Each of the colleges of Drepung has its specialty and the focus of Gomang is philosophy, logic and debate.

Reservations are encouraged for the Evening with the Monks and the Workshop, because they have filled up early in the past years. Go to to make your reservations online.
