Experience a special concert of music, sacred chants, and meditation presented by Ligmincha International; Ligmincha Texas; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. 

Ligmincha International is a worldwide network of centers and sanghas founded by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, whose mission is to bring ancient teachings to modern lives. “Artistic expression—indeed, any human activity, no matter what form it takes—that arises from the source is considered sacred,” he writes. “In my tradition this is referred to as trinlé, or enlightened action.” Expression in any voice or form that emerges from this core has the power to heal and to benefit others.

Inspiring the audience to experience well-being, peace, and joy through the sounds of Eastern music from the Himalayas are Raman Maharjan, a Bansuri flute artist from Nepal; and Tsering Wangmo, a Tibetan performing artist and master singer who performs music created by Rinpoche. In addition, Alejandro Chaoul, PhD, senior teacher in the 3 Doors Academy and director of the Jung Center's Mind Body Spirit Institute, guides meditations. Geshe Thupten Negi and Lama Kalsang Nyima perform a sacred dance from the Bön tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. 

Everyone is welcome to come and experience the transformative power of music, sound, and community. This concert takes place in Brown Auditorium Theater. Reserve your seat in advance! Get tickets below.
