Eight Tibetan Monks bring universal lessons of peace and impermanence. In Florida CraftArt’s Exhibition Gallery, they will create a Sacred Sand Mandala for healing. Witness the step-by-step creation of a traditional Sand Mandala–an ancient art form of Tibetan Buddhism. Mandalas are drawings in sand of the world in its divine form and represent a map by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into the enlightened mind.
Don’t miss this experience where the monks will chant, perform music and dances, as well as share Tibetan culture and traditions.
The monks’ mission is to share the message of com-passion, to create peaceful communities that work together toward World Peace; to provide a window into the ancient and precious Tibetan culture; and to raise funds to educate, feed, house, and provide healthcare for the 2000 Tibetan Buddhist Monks living in exile at Drepung Gomang Monastery in India.
