Of all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, painting with colored sand is one of the most unique and exquisite. Millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid in place on a flat platform over a period of four days. All across the world, the creation and beauty of a Tibetan Sand Mandala painting is an abiding phenomenon of art and construction, emanating spiritual and healing power for all who experience it.
Viewing sessions are free and open to the public.
