Tibetan Monks and Mandalas

All last week, a group of Tibetan Buddhist Monks from Drepung Gomang Monastic College in India, were at the Dayton Metro Library creating a sand mandala.

The finished product:

with a MAP of sorts in the center:

and, as Buddhism teaches, all things are impermanent. After it was finished they swept up all the sand, carried it out of the library and spread it on the river.

More photos here, here and here.

Amazing photos -- here and on the other FaceBook and Flickr pages. Wish I could have been there for the closing ceremony.

Thanks for adding my video.

Be in peace ...
