The colors in the Mandala today were also used in the Tibetan Mandala that I experienced yesterday. A combination of dreams and synchronicity led me to the Art Museum. The Lamas of Drepung Loseling Monastery have been creating a Mandala daily since the opening ceremony on April 26th. This whole thing is strange and I am going to have think about why I was even supposed to be there. The Mandala is the most beautiful display of color that I have even seen except for Henry Reed’s of course (ha, ha) I know nothing of this culture and waited until the Tibetan Monks arrived so that I could try to understand why I came to be here at this time. Is the message simplicity brings beauty and perfection? I noticed that the instruments that the monks used were ancient but sufficient to get the job completed in a beautiful way. The Mandala was breathtaking. Perhaps another message was that during the closing ceremony the monks will dismantle the Mandala, sweeping up the colored sand to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists.
