Hi I'm Gracie (✿◠‿◠) Forever treating myself to Lush baths, being stoned, cuddling my dogs, and not getting enough sleep. Hard and dirty queer femme that has constant food, makeup and tea cravings late at night. Portland, OR.
Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.
They did this at my school. It was hella tight.
If I had to do this I would have sneezed then fucked up the whole thing and get kicked out of the buddhist temple.
