MANDALA SAND PAINTING: The Limelight and Accents Performing Arts Series program titled "Spectacular, Spectacular!" presents Mandala Sand Painting. Throughout the several day construction of a mandala sand painting, Tibetan Monks painstakingly set into place millions of grains of beautifully colored sand. Once the sand painting is finished, the spectacular mandala is destroyed, symbolizing the impermanence of all that exists. Before the mandala is entirely deconstructed, the Monks perform a moving closing ceremony, during which they invoke the spirit of Buddha. Afterwards, the colored sand is gathered and poured into a river or stream where the waters carry away the healing energy of the mandala. The sand painting will be constructed in the lower level of the Wm. J. and John M. Milne Library. The opening ceremony is at 12 noon on April 18. The monks will return during the day on April 19 and 20 to continue the painting. There will be a closing ceremony at 4:30 p.m. on April 21. Free and open to the public.
