Tibetan Buddhist Monks of Drepung Gomang Monastery
Devi 2000 Call and Response Soul Chanting
Jahn “Illuminati” Congo Conscious Spirit Hip Hop.
Join Devi 2000 with our Friends the Tibetan Monks for an evening of meditation and song, celebration and reverence. Featuring Tibetan chanting by the Monks of Drepung Gomang Monastery, we will share in the light of these cultural, spiritual ambassadors from afar. Evanstonian Jahn Congo will add to the night with soulful hip hop, followed by a set of Kirtan–call and response chanting– led by Chicago’s own Devi 2000. Thomas Ananda Zwergel of @Lighthouse Yoga will be the MC for the evening.
“Something very special happened this evening. An exposure to something new for some, something familiar to others… something beautiful and contemplative for us all. I look at each and every one of these monks and I can clearly see devoted, realized and compassionate beings, no doubt. It was a wonderful evening of devotion from both the soul sounds of Tibetan Buddhism and the ecstatic vibrations of Devi 2000. Thank you, Tashi Delek, Nameste” Yeshe Dorge after Drepung Monk Performance at Lake Street Church
