The moment I witnessed the Tibetan Monks crafting their mandala sand painting, I was immediately captivated. They had already been at it for two days, yet the serenity and tranquility exuded from them were remarkable. It was a privilege to observe their unwavering focus and dedication to their craft.

In my next experience, I had the chance to witness the creation of the mandala sand painting with the passing of each day from beginning to end. It was fascinating to see the opening and closing ceremonies and, in the end, see this exquisite art piece destroyed. This experience serves as a reminder to us of the impermanence of life.
