World Peace Mandala

Standard

 

mandalaThe whole world is honored
by the monks’ sand mandala:
every season, every people,
every religion, all forms of weather,
every landscape:
mountains, deserts, rivers, forests…
As I watch them shaking tiny bits of sand
forming impossibly intricate patterns,
I am shaken, startled
by the exquisite beauty staring back at me.
There emerges the most profound experience
of the utter interconnectedness of this world
and everything in it.
I am moved to tears.

  1. How wonderful to be present at the creation of this mandala. What an experience. Beauty and impermanence, fragility and power, all from sand. I’m not surprised you were moved to tears. X

    • I am so grateful to have had this experience and that my children were present for it as well. It was so special and magical that the memories will remain vivid for a long time. ❤ ❤ ❤
