Photographer's Note

Monks from Thiksey Monastery in Ladakh making sand Mandala. "A mandala is a symbolic, circular graphic representation of a Buddist deity's realm of existence and serves as a focus for meditative practice. Sand, traditionally made from crushed precious colored stones is used to create the intricate design. During the process, each grain of sand is charged with the blessings of the ritual process"
