One practice of Tibetan monks
is the creation of sand mandalas.
These mandalas are used for healing and meditation.
The site is first prepared with music and chants.
Special funnels are used to place the sand.
|A Lot of Concentration|
the sand mandala is destroyed
signifying the impermanence of life.
The remains are distributed
to share the blessings.
