Monks Mash Mandala Tomorrow at 5 pm

Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General

The Sera Jey Monastery Monks, mentioned below, will be taking down their sand mandala tomorrow (Thursday December 1 at 5 pm at the University Mall). There is quite a ceremony that goes along with this destruction of a mandala which includes singing, horn blowing, and eventually walking to a nearby creek to give the same back to the earth.

    Nice headline!

    Your post reminded me that I had never uploaded my photos of the same monks making a huge sand manadala for 5 days in Carrboro last year.

    They’ll be up shortly on Flickr
