Legend of the Conch Shell: On 96st

10 December 2009 - 2:05am Comments Off

Appearing in this month’s issue of the upscale lifestyle magazine 96st is Legend of the Conch Shell, where a parallel is drawn between cultural and religious arts, and the uniqueness of learning about Lama Tsongkhapa through dance is discussed.

In fact, everyone interviewed expressed that the sole purpose of the play was to present Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings through arts – Lee Swee Keong (lead dancer), for example, spoke about incorporating prostrations and mudras (hand gestures) into his dancing, whilst Eric Choong (promoter) spoke about his hope that the stage performance will have a positive influence on people’s lives. After all, Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings are timeless, and the story of his life transcends all boundaries between the traditional and modern worlds.
