close up of a Sand Mandala. I remember school taking us to watch the Buddhist monks making sand mandalas and it was breath taking the detail they can make with sand. it teaches you mindfulness, all of it can be swept away with a little gustof wind.
Mandala (मण्डल) is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. In Tibetan Mandala Sand Painting is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of colored powders”. They are key part of anuttarayoga tantra meditation practices.
