Drepung Loseling Monastery Buddhist monk all the way from Tibet will be constructing a mandala sand painting, to be featured as a highlight of Allegheny College‘s Year of Mindfulness. The painting will be housed at the art galleries of the college. The actual construction will take place on March 1 until March 3, from 10 AM to 6 PM daily and on March 4 from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. It will be open to the public for free, which can create a nice opportunity for both the students and the locals.

Mandala sand painting truly is one of the most unique traditions that root from Tantric Buddhism. Colored sand will be used, making the exhibit even more one-of-a-kind, as it is placed onto the platform for several days to create the mandala image. Mandala is a symbol of the universe, and it coincides with the event’s theme of mindfulness. Be sure to check out this rare event if you can!
