Tibetan Buddhist Monks – Mandala Sand Painting
Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery will construct a mandala sand painting at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum from November 6–10, 2019.
The construction will begin with an opening ceremony of chanting and music on Wednesday, November 6 at 12:00 PM. Over the next five days, the monks will pour millions of grains of sand into place, resulting in a mandala approximately 4’ x 4’ in size. The public is welcome to observe the process during the Museum’s regular hours of operation (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM).
A lecture about the meaning of the mandala will take place on Sunday, November 10 at 1:30 PM. A closing ceremony will follow atView more
