Imagine sighing after finishing a detail and it blows out everything you’ve done
That’s basically what these monks do actually.
They create such intricate mandalas to demonstrate the beauty and the fullness of life then blow it all away without a seconds thought to teach us the impermance of life and the “transitory nature of material things”.
Bear in mind that this is a very basic and shallow understanding of the very nuanced and meticulous rituals that surround these sand mandalas.
This is amazing!! I’ve always wanted to know how this was done
The Full Moon of July will be a Super Moon. This is when the Moon can appear up to 5 times bigger than normal. It not only looks beautiful but has many effects on Earth too, the tidal force is up to 18% greater than normal and it also has an effect on animals and wildlife especially birds, wolves and ocean life.
“A super moon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth." neat!
