Farewell to the Monks
The Tashi Lhunpo monks endeared themselves to the people of Diss during their week-long residency at the Corn Hall. Their beautiful sand mandala was the talk of the town; and about 100 people came to witness its destruction. Many then followed the monks to the Mere, symbolically to deposit some of the sand in the water. Their workshops and concert were well attended; and the Friends in High Places festival proved another winner for Diss Museum.
