On Aug. 18, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks chanted, prayed, and consecrated the land as part of a blessing ceremony at Spirit Corner in Cleveland Heights. Lobsang Yeshey, spokesperson for the monks, said the prayers were dedicated to all of the residents of the city, “That they may have immeasurable happiness and be free of suffering, attachment and hatred.” The monks visited as part of a two-year tour of the United States. Religious refugees from Tibet, they are raising funds to support more than 1,500 monks who live in the Gaden Shartse monastery in southern India. For more information visit www.sacredartsoftibettour.org.
