    The Art & Design Department, the Art Education Association with the Student Government Association, and Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery 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 monks will be working in the Gallery on the completion of the Mandala from 10:00 a.m. - noon, with the final dissolution ceremony will taking place from noon - 1:00 p.m. The dispersal of the sands of the mandala in the Ohio River follows immediately.

     

    Parking is free and open except for all reserved spots.

     

    Tibetan sand painting is an ancient art form of Tibetan Buddhism.

    “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. See http://www.gomang.org/chenrezig.html

    Geshe Lharampa Tsewang Thinley will deconstruct the completed mandala in the Closing Ceremony onThursday February 18, and the sands immediately dispersed in the Ohio River after a short journey by car down Anderson Ferry Road. Mandalas are destroyed at the end of the ritual as a symbol of the impermanence of all phenomena, and to spread the healing energy of the Mandala to all of creation.
