The sand mandala is regarded within Tibetan Buddhism as sacred and, until 40 years ago was was rarely seen outside the monasteries.
Architectural in structure, their complex and richly coloured designs have remained unchanged for over 500 years, the skills and secret meaning passed faithfully down through the generations from teacher to student.
The monks make these exquisite mandalas from memory, approaching the task within the framework of ancient ceremonial Tantric ritual, and bringing to the process extraordinary patience and concentration.
