Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts
Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.
That’s here in Dallas as we speak!

I was joking around with Cecil and put a pen between my teeth and said “It’s a metaphor” and he screeched and started screaming about another metaphor infestation and how we had to nip it in the bud this time and kill them…
That would also be very cool. Existence is boring, anyway.
Now hang on just a femptosecond. Existence is not boring! It’s the most exciting thing in the known universe. …Is everything alright, Cecil? You don’t usually get existential this early in the afternoon.
Don’t I? I mean, it is, like, five thirty. Or maybe time is doing that thing where it evades me? I am not sure. I’ve been awake for approximately three days in a vain attempt to evade nightmares which are slowly evolving into horrific day dreams.
