Tibetan Monks Create Sand Mandala Live

Last fall, the Rubin Museum of Art’s Education team hosted a weekend of open houses for various audiences including K-12 educators, university professors, and families。 Throughout the weekend, over 150 educators, professors, and families came to watch three Tibetan Buddhist monks create a sand mandala dedicated to Green Tara, a Buddhist deity and protector。 To accompany the creation of the mandala, the Rubin Museum’s Education Department presented a series of activities, talks, and tours to demonstrate the many ways that we use mandalas for our school, university, and family programs。 Below you can find a recap of the weekend, in pictures。

Before any sand was poured, the monks carefully drew out the mandala using rulers and compasses.

During their final ritual, the monks make many mudras, or symbolic hand gestures. This particular mudra is meant to symbolize a three dimensional mandala.
