Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand - The Mystical Arts
Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.
after creating these pieces the monks will the sweep it away as a reminder that nothing is permanent. anything can change at any moment and you shouldnt fear it but find it to be a blessing. destruction is creation and vice versa
