Chenrezig Mandala


This sand mandala for peace was dedicated to Chenrezig, the deity of compassion. It was created by Drepung Loseling Monks while visiting the U of O in Eugene, Oregon.

The marble sand is colored with finely ground gemstones. It took most of a week to create and when finished, the sand was scooped into a vessel and solemnly carried to the river.
