Impermanence

The Drepung Gomang monks created a peace mandala which was dismantled with a closing ceremony held at Mariposa Museum in Peterbrough, NH. The colored sands were swept up to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists. A portion of the sand was given to the guests and the remainder carried in a procession by the monks to the conjunction of the Contoocook and Nubanusit River, where it was ceremonially poured to disperse the healing energies of the mandala throughout the world.
