Join Randolph College as we host "Circles of Abundance, Circles of Awakening: The Sacred Art of the Tibetan Sand Mandala," featuring three lamas from the Drikung Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism the week of Monday Sept 13 through Saturday Sept 18. Over the course of the week, the three lamas will construct a sand mandala featuring the Buddhist goddess Vasudhara and her four male attendents. Starting with an opening ceremony on Monday at 10am and ending with a closing ceremony and dissolution of the mandala on Saturday 10am, the week will feature daily construction of the sand mandala in Lipscomb Library from 10am-12noon and 3-5pm, as well as multiple opportunities to interact with the lamas. A public talk, "Abundance and Mandalas in Tibetan Buddhism" will be given on Tuesday evening, 7pm, in Nichols Theater by Dr Hun Lye, founder and spiritual director of Urban Dharma in Asheville, NC.
