Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.

Photo Journal: Part 2 of my emotionally difficult trip to Japan. Apart from the family issues, I tried to distract myself with hanging out with my cousin and trying and being in Japan during the spring for only the 2nd time in my life. The first was when I was 2 so I don’t remember it.  My cousin (living in London and going to university and whom I haven’t seen in about 8 years) and I splurged on sushi in Tsukiji, the famous fish market at a restaurant called Sushi Maru. Delicious. The picture with all the mirrors is the entrance into a shopping mall in Harajuku that always turns an eye. And of course, I took a ton of cherry blossom tree pictures. For some odd reason, I randomly ventured to the Imperial Palace one day when I was killing some time and they just happened to be opening the gates up to the public. I waited in a swarm of people (the most respectful and courteous swarm of people ever) for about an hour but it was worth it just to say I’ve been inside the walls. You can find more pictures at my flickr page. Enjoy.

said roberto, “a night spent in silence in the mountains at high altitudes, under an infinite starry sky, certainly makes us realize how marvellous it is to be part of something infinitely greater than ourselves.”
