Making Sand Paintings (11 pics)

In the Tibetan Gaden Shartse Monastery that is located in India, four of the seven Tibetan Monks make traditional sand paintings at the Cozmic Cafe in Placerville that are known as a sand mandala. The Monks raise money to educate local about the Tibetan and Buddhist cultures and for their monastery. The sand paintings are very beautiful and look like they are very tedious to make.

There's a sped-up video of tibetan monks making a sand mandala somewhere on Izi.

It's really incredible, but I can't help but feel a touch of pity when they destroy it.

For fun, one of the visitors should flip a coin into their painting. Then you'd see how much 'godly patience' those monks actually have.

jj;afd, yes they do. Google "Buddhist Monks Create Insane Sand Mandala Sculpture" - sorry I can't embed links. And 2Cool4Ice, is art of waste of time? Is music? Is Izismile? *sigh* so judgemental.
