Check in online to watch the Drepung Gomang Monks construct a mandala!

Building a MandalaDuring their tour of Aryaloka, from August 1st to 6th, 2011, the Drepung Gomang monks will be dedicating a space at our center for mandala construction, and throughout the week you’ll be able to watch online – live, via webcam on the screen below – as their mandala slowly takes form with the careful addition of each colorful grain of sand. This is an amazing process to witness, so don’t miss it!

Viewing times to watch the monks in person at Aryaloka Buddhist Center are open to the public by donation, and directions to Aryaloka can be found by clicking here.
