Friday, January 17th

7:00 PM: Medicine Buddha Sand Mandala Opening Ceremony

The sand mandala is an ancient Tibetan art form and is carefully constructed from colored sand particles (in old Tibet ground gems, herbs, minerals) forming an intricate diagram of the enlightened mind and the ideal world. Among the Tibetan arts, this ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. This Mandala is a representation of the Medicine Buddha, the Supreme Healer in Tibetan medicine that is available for liberating the individual from suffering and is an exemplary metaphor for the mystical elements which are universally inherent in the holistic healing tradition.
