Sand Mandala Destruction Ceremony

Venue: The Corn Hall
Destruction Ceremony - The Sand Mandala is the most exquisite of all the Tashi Lhunpo Monks' artistic traditions. Creating the mandala requires millions of coloured grains of sand to be painstakingly laid into place to form an intricate design over the course of the week. The Destruction Ceremony is the climax of the ritual and a spellbinding spectacle.  

The final symbolic element of the ceremony is for some of the sand grains to be cast into water. If you wish you can join the Monks as they carry the sand to the Mere to disperse the healing energies of the mandala to the water and throughout the world. Then return with them to collect your own sample of the mandala sand which the monks believe is charged with the blessings of the ritual process. Booking recommended.
Purchase a Final Day Ticket which will admit you to all three events on the Final Day and give you a substantial saving.
The Mandala may be viewed from 9am-10.45am prior to the dramatic Destruction Ceremony.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience the music and art of the unique Tibetan Buddhist culture which flourished for six centuries in Tibet and which the monks now continue to practise in exile.
