Tibetan Monks Meticulous,Create Incredible Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand

In Buddhist tradition, a mandala is a sacred image that graphically represents the universe and is intended for use during meditation. Typically circular in shape, a mandala has a central point — called a “seed” or “drop” — toward which all energies are thought to converge.
Buddhist monks frequently create mandalas out of paper, cloth or as three-dimensional models — but occasionally they use bowls of colored sand, which must be delicately placed in a painstaking process that can take weeks. Once completed, the sand mandala is said to represent the fleeting nature of life and is shortly thereafter destroyed by the same monks who labored over it.
