mandala sand

Color mandala: Mandala, also called mandala, often appears in the form of thangkas, murals, etc. According to Buddhist scriptures, Buddhist practitioners in ancient India would build round or square earthen platforms in their practice sites and set up Buddha statues to represent the gathering of Buddhas to prevent the intrusion of demons. The mandala sand painting is called dul-tson-kyil-khor in Tibetan, which means "mandala of colored powder". The prosperous world is just a handful of fine sand. Since the Buddha personally taught his disciples to make sand mandala more than 2,500 years ago, this exquisite religious art has been passed down from generation to generation without interruption. In the eleventh century, it spread from northern India to Tibet and is still preserved today. There are many ways to make mandala sand paintings, which can be expressed in two-dimensional or three-dimensional forms, hand-painted, copper cast, sand built, and wood carved, each with its own characteristics. The composition is well-organized and the colors are brilliant and colorful, giving it a special artistic charm. The mandala sand paintings are rich in profound Buddhist principles and are extremely secret and precious. Since the Buddha personally taught his disciples to make sand mandala more than 2,500 years ago, this exquisite religious art has been passed down through the generations without interruption and has been preserved to this day.

It is said that just contemplating the mandala can lead to vipassana or inner peace, seeing People in the mandala can establish deep karma with the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas themselves.
