Tibetan Buddhist mandala artwork timelapse from creation to deconstruction.

In October 2017 the Tibetan Monks from the Gaden Ngari Khangsten Monastery in India visited the Mei Leaf Teahouse in London to create a beautiful Medicine Mandala.

This clip is from a longer video showing the making of the Mandala and how this can remind us to celebrate Impermanence to reduce fear and increase joy.

ABOUT MANDALAS
From all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with coloured sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. In Tibet, this art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of coloured powders.” Millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform over a period of days or weeks. Formed of a traditional prescribed iconography that includes geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols, the sand-painted mandala is used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants.

Traditionally most sand mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion. This is done as a metaphor for the impermanence of life. The sands are swept up and placed in an urn; to fulfil the function of healing, half is distributed to the audience at the closing ceremony, while the remainder is carried to a nearby body of water, where it is deposited. The waters then carry the healing blessing to the ocean, and from there it spreads throughout the world for planetary healing.
