Tibetan Monks to visit Frankfort Memorial Day Weekend 2013!
FOR THE FULL PRESS RELEASE CLICK HERE!
Healthy Frankfort is proud to help organize and host seven Tibetan refugee monks from the Tashi Kyil Monastery in Dehra Dun, India.
This is unique and special event for Frankfort's community. Events for their stay will include construction of a large, sacred sand painting called a World Peace Mandala (taking 3-4 days of full-time work to make!), a Memorial Day candlelight vigil, meditation and chanting opportunities, a Tibetan cultural program "Travel to Tibet" and outreach to local schools and churches.

The monks are on a fund-raising tour of the United States, with the goal of spreading peace and compassion while raising funds to support their refugee monastery.
From their sponsor's website:
"Their monastery is small and poor and needs funds to renovate its living quarters and to further the education of the young monks who have been sent there by their families to be taught the Buddha Dharma and to prepare for life in the 20th century."
We do need help from the community to make this possible. If you are interested in volunteering to help organize an event, or would like to financially support the monks in their journey please let us know! Donations will be accepted at all events, but all are always welcome regardless with or without donating. We are also looking to get 20 more individual donations of $100 to support the construction of the World Peace Mandala.
Please consider taking a moment to support their monastery and their visit to our capital city. By doing so, you invite more wonderful opportunities like this in the future!
