    Creation of Sacred Sand Mandala

    SSG Art Gallery

    The Art Department, the Art Education Association, and Student Government Association of Mount St. Joseph University are immensely excited to host the creation of the Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara), the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Sand Mandala by the Monks of the Drepung Gomang Monastery in Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery.
     
    The public is invited to watch the creation of the mandala.
     
    Tibetan sand painting is an ancient art form of Tibetan Buddhism. The term “mandala” is a Sanskrit word meaning cosmogram, or “world in harmony.” The sand mandala is carefully constructed from dyed sand particles as a vehicle to generate compassion, to realize the impermanence of reality, and to create a social/cosmic healing of the environment. The purpose of the construction of the Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara), the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Mandala is to encourage every one of us to generate a compassionate heart for the benefit of all sentient beings.
     
    Information about Drepung Gomang Monastery and their North American tour is available on their website: www.drepunggomang.org and www.gomang.org
