This art video offers you a insight into the world of the Buddhist monk and how they create their ‘mandala’ art as a way to express their practices and beliefs.

Mandala is a Sanskrit word which means ‘circle’ and are often concentric diagrams with spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism. In the Tibetan branch of Buddhism, mandalas have been developed into sand paintings like the one featured in this video.

They can take hours to weeks to form and their intricacies and fine detailing really is stunning and is definitely something to admire. When the mandala is finished the monks take a second to appreciate it and then literally dispose of the design by dragging implements across it as a representation of life and death amongst other meanings. Utterly intriguing!

    I have just visited a Buddhist temple in McLeod Ganj, India, the residence of the Dalai Lama and here the Buddhist monks were engaged in producing a huge Mandala. Using metal horn type dispensers which they vibrated with a stick to flow the sand into the correct area. Interestingly they all wore surgical face masks to avoid the risk of sneezing and putting work back by weeks!!! This video does develop a taste for understanding the Mandala process and meaning.

  5. It’s honoring the process of creating and letting go. Art can be made again, beauty comes and goes as does all creation. To practice this is to acknowledge the powers both us and the universe share and to have faith in it as a glorious and mind opening process. Thw water gives and takes as does the sand. Both shore and ocean give and take back to and from each other as does Yin and Yang throughout the process of time and space.

  6. yes, but like all things it is still a natural cycle. Best to not become the destroyer though, since we are an act of creation and practicing destruction would be ill advised. This ritual though seems to be more of an actual acknowledgement and a prayer that creations come and go and so long as they do, the power of creation will live forever within us and everywhere at once. It seems to praise the great cycle and be at peace with it’s passing, and has faith that it can be made again.

    i like buddhism and tibet and all, but that is a terrible energy – to make something so beautiful and then destroy it. it doesn’t matter that the universe (on this planet as far as interpreted history goes) is like that, cause it isn’t supposed to be. the destroyer aspect of god isn’t meant to be mean that kind of thing. if you did that it could destroy your kingdom, if you see what i mean.

  9. I’m just wondering how food dye could have helped starving people? That was either a delusion or a joke. Food dye, of the unnatural (chemical) kind, actually makes people sick in the long run. It is not meant for consumption. But most doctors would rarely warn you of it, unless they are homeopaths. It would harm the pharmaceutical industry if children stopped eating sweets with artificial colours. Flavours. Preservatives. :( And that’s only children.

    spelt >*YOU*< wrong buddy. "one thousand candles can be lit from a single candle, and it will not sorte the candles life. happiness never decreases when shared." try sharing happiness, and dont tell me youre never happy, rather than criticisim, and anger. you will find a more peaceful lifestyle, no doubt.

    are you joking there is no nutrinal value in food dye . If you have a family and they are NOT putting on weight it might be a good time to check into a food class, youtube channel, cooking class, somthing along thoose lines.

    If I recall correctly, the sand mandalas are created & then destroyed to bring home the message that there is impermanence to all life. That reminds me of an epitaph I saw in a cemetery one time, and always remembered: “Remember me as you pass by As you are now, so once was I As I am now, so shall you be… Prepare yourself to follow me.”–epitaph seen on a tombstone
