The Unholy Escort
Sand mandalas last for just a short time, but the images and messages cling to the emotions for years. Experience the beauty of this meditative art from Rochester, NY artist Katie Jo Suddaby. Each design is unique and impermanent. Once she is finished, the image is wiped away. The sand is "given back to nature" by putting it in a flowing body of water. It's blessings flow wherever the river reaches. This is the technique Tibetan Buddhists have been using for thousands of years- reinvented for the western audience.
