After some seriously intense work, we finished our sand mandalas! (Or we decided to stop there!) Some of us almost got addicted to trying to create the perfect balanced sand-distributed pattern.
Check out our Gallery of Finished Works.
And… just like our inspirational monks, we decided to destruct our mandalas in a meaningful way. Groups discussed their plans and then we took action. Some ceremoniously dumped their mandala into the trash, others took it outside and left it for the wind to take out into the world, some blew it away over the water and others rolled it up and stored in a bottle for future generations.
