Tibetan monks teach cooking lessons, blessing pets in West Palm.

Mounts Botanical Gardens It attracted pilgrims from all over, and among those who arrived in late January were monks from a Tibetan monastery in southern India. But they weren’t just touring, they were drawn. They were traveling under the banner of Sacred Arts Tour Monks of Draping Gumang Monastery.

Their stay lasted for six days and included many special ceremonies, including the blessing of animals. During the blessing, the monks recited mantras for health and success in this life and the next. Not only private pet owners took advantage of this opportunity, so did volunteers Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control Bring in some abandoned pets that day. The monks also presided over an authentic Tibetan cooking class. The participants got to experience making momos, naan and thanthak with the monks. They also performed a ceremonial sweeping of mandala sand.
