The Power of Compassion is a performance of masked dance and sacred chant from a Tashi Lhunpo Monastry in India.

The dramatic dances, taken from the Gutor Festival before Tibetan Losar (New Year) use colourful costumes and masks, and the instruments include the long horns, drums, cymbals and bells of the Tibetan Tantric orchestra, interspersed with the atmospheric calm of traditional chanting of mantras and prayers from the monastery. The performance includes introductory explanations of each item in the programme.

The monks have performed in theatres, arts centres and village halls all over the UK and Europe and have been in residence at a number of festivals including Glastonbury, Womad, Musicport and Larmer Tree amongst others. In 2018 they appeared for three weeks at the Edinburgh Fringe.
