Tibetan Monks will construct an intricate Mandala (sand painting) representing Peace and Interfaith connectedness over three days & on the third, they will perform a closing ceremony, complete with chanting, and accompanied by cymbals, drums, horns, and flutes. To symbolize the impermanence of all that exists, the colored sands are swept up & they will lead a procession to the Kaw River, where the sand will be deposited, carrying the sand's healing energies throughout the world.
Beautiful Tibetan Refugee made items will be available for sale throughout the mandala creation. A great opportunity to shop for your holiday gifts!
