Mystical Arts of Tibet: Drepung Loseling Monastery Sand Mandala Residency

When: Sept. 13-18 2016

The Tibetan Buddhist monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery return to the Jepson Center to create an exquisite sand mandala painting as part of a weeklong residency. This Tibetan Buddhist tradition involves the creation and destruction of a mandala made from colored sand. The sand mandala is ritually destroyed once it has been completed, and its accompanying ceremonies and presentation symbolize the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life.
