Glencairn Museum in Bryn Athyn, PA, hosts a free viewing of the creation of a Tibetan Buddhist Sand Mandala.
From their website: Witness the step-by-step creation of a traditional Sand Mandala, an ancient art form of Tibetan Buddhism.
Mandalas are drawings in sand of the world in its divine form; they represent a map by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into an enlightened mind.
Watch as the Venerable Losang Samten (the first Buddhist given permission by the Dalai Lama to make Mandalas in the West) completes and then ritualistically dismantles an Amitabha Buddha Mandala, the Buddha of Infinite Light.
ALSO on the same floor, be sure to visit the alcove containing biblical lithographs by Marc Chagall.
