Attachment to Illusion

by adminadam in art, videos

The Sand Mandala (Tibetan: དཀྱིལ་འཁོར།; kilkhor) is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition involving the creation and destruction of mandalas made from colored sand. A sand mandala is ritualistically destroyed once it has been completed and its accompanying ceremonies and viewing are finished to symbolize the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life.

You build a fire and then you light it…

Symbolism in each grain

Ceremonious cooperation

Beauty is fleeting, as are all things

Fine detail, fine labor, and karmic purification

Sweeping away the attachment…
