Tibetans in Johannesburg (South Africa)

Cultural Activities

New Acropolis South Africa had the great pleasure of presenting two fascinating talks by two guest speakers from the Men-Tsee-Khan Institute of Dharamsala. Participants included members of NASA, western physicians and alternative astrologers.

The first talk about Tibetan astrology showed that it is more than a way of predicting the future. It is based on the mathematical calculations of the stars, and with a more holistic approach (which investigates the individual and the environment), it is key not only in terms of offering more precise predictions, but also to provide solutions.

The second talk about Tibetan medicine was also very enlightening, presenting profound knowledge about enhancing a healthy life and a good deal of practical advice on preventative aging that can be easily integrated into everyday life.

We finally organized a dinner for our guest speakers and delegates from the Tibet Cultural Office at the end of their visit to Johannesburg. It was a great privilege to be able to share a “South African” themed meal with the monks and guest speakers!
