Tibetan monks perform a closing ceremony Saturday for the traditional mandala artwork that they created with colored sand at the Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum. Many spectators soaked in the Buddhist chants, drums and horns. The monks dismantled the artwork and led a peaceful community procession to Trail Creek, where the sand was dispersed into the waters. “The Argyros was thrilled to provide five days of spiritual engagement from the visiting Drepung Loseling monks,” said Argyros Marketing and Development Director Margaret Hamamoto. “The Wood River Valley had the opportunity to witness the spectacular creation of the Akshobhya sand mandala, signifying conflict and peace.”
