The Healing Buddha Mandala

After only being in Esperance for two weeks and in our new home for only 4 days I had to fly back to work for two weeks work. While I was in a new age store I picked up a mandala postcard to find that a Tibetan Lama and his monks were in Perth creating a sand mandala. One of my appointments was cancelled so I used the oppurtunity to go and view the creation of the mandala.

I spent about an hour just watching the monks at work. They had laid scarves down on the floor and we were not allowed to cross these, one of the monks gave me permission to cross and take closer photo's, as long as I took a photo of him at his work.

The mandala was some way off being completed when I viewed it, but the Stillpoint Centre was taking many photos of it and upon its completion. When I get the newsletter I will post a photo of the completed mandala.

lucky you to have seen this while it was actually being worked upon. I have only ever seen pictures of these sand mandalas, never the real thing
