Help needed for monks' Victoria visit

Hello members and friends of CTC Victoria,

There is a strong possibility that a group of Tibetan monks from India could come to Victoria this coming September/October to create a sand mandala at the Art Gallery.

Over the years a number of sand mandalas have been created by visiting monks. It always creates a lot of interest in the community, which helps raise awareness of Tibet and raise funds for the monks’ monastery, and boosts interest and membership in CTC.

Such a visit always requires a lot of organization beforehand and help at the time. The decision as to whether on not to invite the monks to Victoria will depend, in part, on whether we have people who would like to take on some of the work involved.

At this point we aren’t sure of dates but if you think you might be able to help with this, please contact Joe Dorscher:, / phone 250-380-1235, as soon as possible as a decision will have to be made very soon.

Thanks for your support.
