This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Together."
Tibetan monks work together to create a sand mandala that honors the female Buddha, Green Tara. They came to my area as part of a Sacred Arts Tour, spent a couple of weeks creating this sand painting, and then had a ceremony where they destroyed it, giving us a Buddhist lesson about impermanence and change.
These monks are from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India, where 2,000 refugee monks live. More info about the Sacred Arts Tour here.
Thanks for visiting and have a happy weekend. You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.
