Mandala: The Sacred Art of Sand
Buddhist nuns from the
Keydong Thuk-che Choeling Nunnery in Kathmandu, Nepal, are creating a
mandala, a sand painting used for prayer, contemplation, and healing.
Monastic women from this same nunnery were the first to create a sand
mandala in the United States, which took place at Trinity College in
1998. Keydong nuns returned to Trinity to create a second mandala in
2005. Both graphic and abstract in design, the intricate forms and
spiritual symbols of a mandala can be "read" by the initiated. At the
center is a square diagram of a palace inhabited by an enlightened
celestial being. In this case, it is Avalokiteshvara, the Buddhist
deity of compassion
