The Mystical Arts of Tibet is a world tour endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to promote world peace and healing through the sharing of Tibet’s sacred visual arts. The tour offers a rare opportunity to witness one of the world’s most ancient and sacred traditions, mandala sand painting. Since the tour began in 1988, the Drepung Loseling monks have enjoyed overwhelming reception across the globe, as exhibit attendees watch them painstakingly lay down millions of grains of sand to create the mandala pattern. The days-long process begins with an opening ceremony and ends with a dismantling of the mandala design and ceremonial distribution of the sand back into the earth—symbolizing the impermanence of life.
