Tibetan nuns creating spiritual sand art project at Wellesley College

Tibetan nuns at Wellesley CollegeMembers of the Keydong Nunnery from Tibet are at Wellesley College this week and the public is invited to view the mandala, or sand project, that they are creating (don’t be looking for Revere Beach-like sand sculptures).

The mandala will be open and on display to the public from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily and live streamed during work hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Both the public hours and the live stream will have a few interruptions during times when the hall must close to the public to honor sacred intervals in the mandala-making process. Due to the nature of the project, the times the mandala is closed are not scheduled and not predictable, except a few hours in advance.
