Film/Forum – The State Oracle of Tibet

Followed by Forum with Ven. Thupten Ngodrup

Thu 31 Jan 2013

The outstanding feature of this year’s Festival touches on the little-known tradition of Tibetan oracles.

An important part of the Tibetan way of life, oracles act as mediums between the physical and the spiritual realms and can be called upon as protectors and healers as well as to foretell the future. The most highly revered of these is the tradition of Nechung, the State Oracle of Tibet, whose spirit enters a Buddhist monk to give guidance to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile.

A film about the State Oracle of Tibet will be followed by an extraordinary opportunity to discuss the tradition of Nechung with Ven. Thupten Ngodrup himself, who is the present Nechung medium of the Chief Oracle of Tibet based in Dharamsala, India. Don’t miss this rare, never to be repeated event.
