While the preceding five days have been rather serene, meditative moments in Laguna Beach’s Congregational Church’s sanctuary, today’s final ceremony for the Tibetan Sand Mandala was a colorful riot of people, cameras, videos and photographers on ladders …
In its fifth and final day, the Sand Mandala continues to morph and transform before our eyes – still extraordinary after watching for five straight days! Closing ceremonies for the dissolution of the Mandala is Tuesday at the Neighborhood Congregational Church in Laguna Beach . . .
As you can see, the Tibetan Sand Mandala is progressing very quickly here in Laguna Beach’s Neighborhood Congregational Church. (It’s green! Wow!) The crowds are growing thicker, too, as news of the Tibetan monks’ sand painting creation is getting out!. . . .
Every day that I trot down to the Laguna Beach Congregational Church to see the growing Sand Mandala, I’m always surprised at how much work has been done. This is what they had accomplished by Saturday afternoon . . .
As you probably know by now from all my blog entries, we have 5 Tibetan monks in Laguna Beach this week creating a Sand Mandala for 5 days. They’re at the Neighborhood Congregational Church at Glenneyre and St. Ann’s. This is really something you have to see. I know I’ve said it 15 times . . . . I’m going to say it at least two more times in this blog . . .
This morning (Thurs, Oct. 28), the Laguna Beach Neighborhood Congregational Church welcomed 5 Tibetan monks (all the way from India) to its sanctuary. For the next five days, these monks will be creating an original sand painting (Sand Mandala) as an expression and call for compassion in Laguna Beach and around the world. This was quite an opening event to witness . . .
