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.
Okay so, fun fact, there’s actually more to this than just a pretty piece of sand-art! Actually, after they’ve finished creating a gorgeous sand painting, the monks sweep away the sand, destroying the spectacular piece of art. They do it to show that nothing in life is permanent, that everything is “empty” (a Buddhist concept that might take me ages to explain), and all things will eventually fade to nothing - just as a painstakingly-made beautiful piece of art like the sand paintings can become nothing with just a sweep of a hand or a gust of wind.
