With an acoustic background of recorded sacred chanting filling the rafters of the Argyros Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, Tibetan monks, from left, Tenpa Lektsok, Lobsang Tharchin, Choegyal Sangpo and Tsering Tashi work on a sand mandala. A mandala is a spiritual circular artistic design important and symbolic in Hindu and Buddhist religions. This particular one is an Akshobyya pattern dealing with conflict resolution and peace. The project is open to the public for viewing today until 6 p.m. On Saturday at noon the sand will be swept away and placed in Trail Creek, representing the impermanence of all aspects of life. The monks said they hope to promote world peace and harmony, increase awareness of their traditions and educate the world of their exiled plight and needs.
