February 9, 1996 | Video Lecturer:

Barry Bryant of the Samaya Foundation introduces a group of Tibetan monks that create a mandala sand painting for the students and faculty. The monks begin by locating and connecting points on the drawing surface that comprise the ordering system for the final painting. Using funnels rather than the traditional hand-only technique, they start in the east and work clockwise to reference natural cycles. Students and faculty, lead by Michael Rotondi, try the technique on two other Mandalas simultaneously while the monks demonstrate. The mandala is part of the tantra whose meaning is only known to the monks.
