Tibetan Sand Mandala

Tibetan Sand Mandala

Tibetan Monks create a Sand Mandala to encourage healing, peace, and purification from Sept 16 - 18

Tibetan Sand Mandalas are works of art created to encourage healing, peace, and purification. They serve as a spiritual and psychological focus specifically for those creating and viewing it. A Mandala (Sanskrit for "circle") is a geometric image representing the universe and a Sand Mandala, wiped away after completion, emphasizes the transitory nature of all things in that universe.

Tibetan Monks will be creating a Sand Mandala Friday & Saturday, September 16th, 17th from 12:00 – 4:00 pm and on Sunday, September 18th from 11:00 – 3:00 pm. at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center

There will be a Closing Ceremony on Sunday, September 18th at 3:00 pm in the courtyard of the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center where the Monks will wipe the sand away and take it to the beach and give dedications and then put into the ocean. They believe that the sand will reach all of the world through the ocean.

This event is presented by Arts & Culture Festival 2022.
