Lecture: Symbolism of the Sand Mandala

March 5, 2017

CES at Frostburg State University

The Mandala is a sacred cosmogram used as an object of contemplation. It depicts the pure nature of the world in which we live as well as how we can live most effectively. By creating a Sand Mandala we bring the creative energy of that sacred dimension into our lives and attune ourselves to this natural perfection.Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, who was chosen at age 14 to study at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics, the private school of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, leads the lecture. The free program will be held in the Lane University Center's Atkinson Room.
