Sand mandala

Postby MJH » Mon Feb 14, 2011 10:06 pm

Hi everyone,

phpBB [video]


I just wanted to post a video of the creation of a sand mandala, that I shot late last year. It's from last September at the "Drammen Sacred Music Festival" here in Norway. We were lucky enough to be visited by monks from the Tserkarmo Monastery while they were on their "Sacred Art of the Himalaya" European tour. It was a fantastic experience.

Some info from the Monks:

Beautiful thank you.
I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways, Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears, I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbèd pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat - and a Voice beat - More instant than the Feet - ‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.’

Great!

We continue to put much effort into all kinds of things. Sometimes what is called "beauty" or "perfection" may arise from this. However it is only a matter of moments, since the causes that give rise to it are actually the causes for its disintegration too.

Kind regards

It was truly a great experience. The monks were in Norway for a little over a week and were able to create 3 different mandalas in different places. I was only able to film the first, but I do have some stills from the 3rd. I'll try to post some a little later.

If anyone is interested in their monastery, you can check out some info here:
