Tibetan sand mandalas are carefully, lovingly created by hand and then destroyed to show the impermanence of all things

Tibetan sand mandalas are carefully, lovingly created by hand and then destroyed to show the impermanence of all things. I was fortunate to view a mandala being created in Whakatane, New Zealand by visiting Tibetan Monks.

These sand mandalas are made by hand, dropping one grain of sand at a time. After it is completed, it is destroyed. A beautiful gesture that shows how temporary time is.

The Buddhist monks create sand works like this one as a form of meditation, drizzling the sand out from small metal funnels. The image incorporates icons that include geometric shapes and ancient spiritual symbols. A ceremony celebrated the completion of the sacred mandala, and ended with a monk wiping the sand away – a symbol of the impermanence of things.
