Join us for the third incarnation of our captivating poetry series curated by Arden Wohl. Building on the success of our previous two series, this edition promises to be an extraordinary series of evenings inspired by the legendary Sixth Dalai Lama, Tsangyang Gyatso (1683-1706). We have embarked on an ongoing journey of poetic exploration fueled by the spirit of Tsangyang Gyatso.


The Sixth Dalai Lama was a fascinating figure who embraced life with unparalleled passion, devoting himself to his passions for archery, alcohol, and women, while eschewing the path of complete monastic vows. Renowned for his captivating verses and melodies, he left behind a remarkable legacy of love and erotic poetry that continues to resonate with audiences to this day. Despite his unconventional lifestyle, Tsangyang Gyatso was cherished by many, his words serving as a testament to the depth of human emotions and experiences.


Join us for four evenings of unforgettable performances and the shared joy of poetic expression guided by the discerning eye of Arden Wohl.

This event will be happening in person at Tibet House and live-streamed on our  Facebook Page
