The Drikung Meditation Center is presenting the Vasudhara Sand Mandala at 15 Bartlett Avenue featuring the Venerable Lama Konchok Sonam of the Drikung Center and the Venerable Khenpo Choephel from Three Rivers Dharma Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
All are welcome to observe while they work and ask questions or take pictures. The Drikung Center will be open from 10am-4pm during the creation stage of the mandala.
The Sand Mandala is an offering made in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The intention is to focus the mind towards a peaceful aspiration prayer by creating a visible representation with sand over a several day period. Once completed, the Sand Mandala will be dissolved and released breaking down attachment and fixation. “A Sand Mandala is creating an outer environment that reflects the meditator’s inner reality of peace, harmony and health as developed through meditation and contemplation,” says Lama Sonam of the Drikung Center. “This wish will extend to the entire community and world through the visualization and actualization of the sand mandala.”
