Manjushri Sand Mandala and Dissolution Ceremony
With the completion of the Manjushri Sand Mandala that the Gaden Shartse monks have spent the past two weeks creating, it is now time for a brief explanation of the mandala (monks study the mandala for years to achieve a deep understanding of its hidden meanings and symbolism), followed by the Dissolution Ceremony, during which the beautiful mandala, constructed of colorful grains of sand, is swept up and ritually “dissolved,” signifying the impermanence of all life and all things.
