We are delighted to announce our support for a project at Asia Society this month. Monks from the Drigung school of Buddhism will construct a sand mandala over the course of five days (from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day), in conjunction with the opening of the Golden Visions of Densatil: A Tibetan Buddhist Monastery exhibition. The mandala sand painting is a sacred cosmogram representing the world in perfect harmony, and may be employed for focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation. We hope to see you there!

Asia Society is located at 725 Park Avenue, at East 70th Street, New York, NY.
