Sand Mandala Creation: Time Lapse

Need a little Zen? Check out this mesmerizing video of the creation of a Wheel of Time sand mandala, a Buddhist meditative art. This mandala was created by the Venerable Losang Samten at MIT. The entire process took 5 days; this video recorded a frame every five minutes. According to Buddhist tradition, it was dismantled immediately after completion.

It’s made out of colored sand. Amazing.
