Nritya Mandala Mahavihara Celebrates 10 Years

Nritya Mandala Mahavihara is an authentic Newar Nepali temple in the heart of Portland, Oregon. Prajwal, the resident priest, is the son of Ratna Kaji, who introduced Prema to the sacred Vajrayana Dance of Charya. The Nritya Mandala is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary with multiple events.  They just held their Opening Celebration September 21–22, 2019, hosted at Henjyoji Shingon Temple. Third Level Tara Dhatu Teacher Phyllis Moses joined the opening ceremony …. She writes…

The opening day of the 10th anniversary was really precious. Noelle, Kim, Ingrid and I offered Tara Dhatu’s Refuge & Bodhicitta. I shared a bit about Taradhatu and participated in the Dance of the 5 Wisdom Buddhas. At the end of the evening, after wonderful dance performances by Prajwal, Helen and their senior students, Prajwal mentioned my Tara Dance circle and was able to share about Prema and Myri’s Oct. 9th event.

We were delighted to receive this special video from a Nepali TV station…
