Those Tibetan Monks are at it again, making sand mandalas for the healing of the planet.

There will be a “dispersion” ceremony today. After  painstaking creation they will sweep the sand into a vessel and distribute half the sand to the spectators and take the other half to a local river where it will be carried to the sea, for the healing of the planet.

I’ve been waiting a long time to actually see one of these and it was wonderful. Gotta love those monks!
