    This is beautiful. In Malaysia, the Indians usually decorate their houses with 'kolam' (rice powder) during Deepavali. Heehee.. (=

  22. Thanks for sharing this photo. I, too, have watched monks creating sand mandalas and it is quite an experience. It is hard to imagine how detailed they are. And the monks are mindful and focused, and look so happy while creating it.

  28. The Mandala is a beautiful piece of artwork. It takes days to complete and requires great patience. I've seen the Tibetan monks done it in Singapore.

    I had to click on your link to learn about them. It's a beautiful action to destroy it once it is completed. To me, it strikes me as a reminder that nothing lasts forever, nor should it. Great shots!
