Here today, gone mandala…

As some of you know, a group of Buddhist monks spent the last week constructing a sand mandala at the Alys Stevens Center.  The monks worked with just a few grains of sand at a time to create the intricate design.  And this afternoon they needed just a few minutes to destroy it.  the destruction is symbolic of the impermanence of life.  (More pictures from the ceremony in a later edit of this post.)
