Witnessing Losang Samten’s process of making the mandala was very interesting and almost thrilling, even though I only saw the making of it on the last day. I’ve never seen anyone scratch a large piece of metal just to create a piece of art like that. Colored powder coming out of that piece of metal was pretty exciting to see (sand painting). I can’t imagine how someone can make those geometric shapes so perfect. Him explaining the meaning of the mandala work also made it all the more special. As I watched the dismantling process, I found it very wonderful that he was blessing the campus and pouring the mandala in the lake. Losang Samten does an amazing job at creating mandalas from what I saw.
