On July 11th 2005 The Drepung Gomang Monks bestowed a Puja upon Beads & Things.
"Puja" is a Sanskrit word that means "offering" The monks will chant prayers and perform rituals. The prayers are recited in the traditional overtone chanting, each monk singing a full chord of three notes. The prayers are often accompanied by delicate hand gestures, cymbals, drums, horns and flutes. The Drepung Gomang Monastery presents a very special tour focusing on sacred arts and the community. Art is the foundation for which individual expression and faith is conveyed.

Mission of the Sacred Art Tour
The mission of the Sacred Art Tour is threefold: first, the monks sincerely wish to communicate a message of peace, wisdom and compassion to heal our anxious minds in these troubled times; second, they are eager to introduce the arts and culture of Tibet to a North American audience; third, the monastery wishes to generate funds for two programs necessary for the preservation of the mission of Drepung Gomang Monastery. These Donation Programs are the Food Foundation and the Health Fund.
