Dalai Lama and the Gyuto Monks

SHARE Dalai Lama and the Gyuto Monks

Those are the sounds of Gyuto monks of Tibet.

The monks practice the Tantric arts, including harmonic chanting and the creation of sand mandalas.

They live with the Dalai Lama in India and work to preserve the ancient rituals and traditions of the monastic community.

The Gyuto Monks performed a ceremony Sunday afternoon as a tribute to the Dalai Lama who spoke before thousands in Chicago's Millennium Park yesterday.
