And Buddha Smiled On 

Monday, May 5th, 2014

In New Jersey, three Tibetan monks were recently working on a mandala, made from millions of grains of sand in various hues. Sand mandalas are painstakingly created and then ceremoniously destroyed, to symbolize the fleeting nature of life. As the monks neared completion of their days-long task, a small boy sped the process along for them.

Also well-worth a read in the category of “Tibetan monks” is this February article on the Dalai Lama’s ski trip.
