The Venerable Losang Samten is creating The Medicine Buddha Mandala out of sand at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg (255 Beach Drive NE).
The mandala is being created in the Museum lobby and there is no charge for going in to see Losang Samten at work. He may be seen working on the mandala Jan. 4-10 and 12-15 from 10:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The sand mandala will be dismantled on Saturday Jan. 16 at noon.
This is a beautiful artistic and spiritual process to witness. You are encouraged to stop by and take in this special experience.
