Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred cosmogram. These cosmograms can be created in various media, such as watercolor on canvas, wood carvings, and so forth. However, the most spectacular and enduringly popular are those made from colored sand. From all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. In Tibetan, the art is called dul-tson-kyil-khor, which literally means “mandala of colored powders.” As with the sand painting tradition as a whole, mandalas have their roots in the Tantric legacy of Buddhist India, extending back some 2,500 years. The Chapman Cultural Arts Center in Spartanburg played host to Tibetan Monks as they demonstrated this art form. Produced by USC-Upstate Student Media Producers.
