The Trustees of Sarabhai Foundation are happy to invite you to a rare, auspicious and beautiful event.

Six monks from the famous Gyuto monastery near Dharamsala will create a Sand Mandala in the auditorium of the Sarabhai Foundation. It will take almost six days to complete this work of art.

And once completed, it will be ritually dissolved in water one day later.

But you can see it while it is being made. We want to share this experience with you. What is the meaning of a mandala in the Tibetan tradition? A mandala is in principle “enlightened architecture“, the blueprint of a wonderful palace, housing at its center an aspect of the highest wisdom. This aspect is called the “deity“.

There are countless mandalas because there are countless aspects of transcendent wisdom.

Our mandala represents the palace of Avalokiteshvara,
the great Bodhisattva of selfless love, compassion, and peace.

The making of a Sand Mandala is considered a great blessing for the place where it is made, for all sentient beings around, and for the whole human community.

It is much more than a fascinating artwork. The Mandala itself will not remain, but having seen it may plant a seed of enlightenment in the mind of the viewer.
A mandala is a tool for the transformation of consciousness. The Sand Mandala practice is an important ritual with many layers of meaning.
Come with an open mind to get your own personal and unique experience!

The dates for public viewing of the monks working on the Sand Mandala are Monday 9 March 2020 and Friday 13 March 2020, entry 3 to 5 pm.

In addition, Cornelia Vogelsanger will do a guided tour of the new Buddhist Gallery daily from Thursday 19 March 2020 to Sunday 22 March 2020 from 3 to 4 pm.

Sorry, no cameras, no mobile phones. Your belongings will be kept safe at the gate. And sorry, no kids under the age of 12!
