2100. Sand Mandala. Day 3 of the making of an exquisite sand mandala for Asia Society’s upcoming exhibit, Golden Visions of Densatil: A Tibetan Buddhist Monastery exhibition.
"The mandala sand painting is a sacred cosmogram representing the world in perfect harmony, and may be employed for focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation. To create the mandala, the monks will draw a formal pattern on the base, using traditional iconography that includes intricate geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols. The monks then place millions of grains of brightly colored sand to form the mandala, which represents the world in its divine form."
