Painting with colored sands is one of the most exquisite and unique expressions of Tantric Buddhism. In Tibetan, this art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor which literally means “mandala of colored powders.” Over several days visiting Tibetan monks will create an intricate work made from millions of grains of colored sands. Public opening and closing rituals are an integral part of the program and a public lecture will provide insights into the philosophies and practices related to this enduring mystical art. The project is presented in collaboration with and made possible by FAU's Peace Studies Program. Free and open to the public. www.fau.edu/galleries.
