Mandala of Compassion @PacAsiaMuseum

Today monks from India and Bhutan affiliated with the Chokhor Gepel Ling Tibetan Buddhist Center swept away a magnificent mandala sand painting they’d been working on since Wednesday at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena. The idea of a sand mandala is to illustrate the concept of impermanence. The room was packed and kids in particular stared in awe at the ceremony.

No better way to mark the interconnectedness of the universe than this.
