A truly fascinating look at a buddhist sand mandala. Monks visited Jayvant‘s school where they demonstrated the creation of a buddhist sand mandala. They create this incredible artwork by simply pouring a few grains of colored sand at a time. I’m sure the monks must spend an extremely long amount of time to create such art! Then they simply deconstruct it and pour the contents into a body of water. The ritual itself is a demonstration of nonattachment to the material world. Why are we so attached to the material world?????
