Buddhist monks promote peace through sacred art of sand mandala

Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India spent three days at Webster University creating a sand mandala with the theme of world peace. It depicts a dove at the center of the earth surrounded by the symbols of many world religions, showing harmony between them. The monks stated that they specifically chose the theme of world peace because we are living in a turbulent time. Once finished, the monks destroy the mandala in a ceremony to represent the impermanence of life.
