    Lines with sand: mandala world tour returning

    A monk creates a mandala by pouring intricate triails of brightly-coloured sand.Cowra Regional Art Gallery is pleased to once again host the Sacred Footsteps from the Roof of the World Tour 2015 presented by the Drol Kar Buddhist Centre.

    Over five days the group of visiting Tibetan Buddhist Monks from monasteries in India will create an intricate mandala to the exact design, colours and proportions as laid down in ancient Buddhist text.

    The monks have memorised the text and carefully follow the iconography laid down long ago.

    The mandala is a representation of an enlightened being’s place of residence and everything that is contained within it.

    Each part of the mandala is rich in symbolism and reminds the meditator of the insights and states of mind and feelings he/she is trying to accomplish.

    The mandala is made by pouring fine trails of brightly coloured sand onto a mathematically precise framework through specially crafted funnels of various sizes.

    Within the mandala the five elements of fire, air, water, earth and space are represented by the colours red, yellow, blue, green and white (respectively).

    On the final day, Sunday August 2, commencing at 2.30pm the completed mandala is swept away in a matter of seconds by the monks as part of a special dissolution ceremony.

    During the creation of the sand mandala there will be opportunities for interaction and discussion about Buddhist practices and Tibetan culture.

    The daily program will also be supported by a range of other events including a stall of wonderful Tibetan handicrafts, a guided meditation session and a public talk on “The Wisdom of Forgiveness”.
