Above: Tibetan Buddhist monk Geshe Tsulug Gyatso chants while holding a Dorje — a sacred Tibetan symbol. The monks recently came from th Drepung Loseling Monastery to share their practices and culture with the University of Missouri Campus. During this closing ceremony, a sand mandala that took a week to meticulously construct is swept away. The practice is meant to symbolize the impermanence of all things in life — so that one can come to terms with that fact and live life more fully.
