Closing Ceremony and Hike Traditionally most sand mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion, as a metaphor of the impermanence of life. The sands are swept up and placed in an urn; to fulfill the function of healing, half is distributed to the audience at the closing ceremony, while the remainder is carried to a nearby body of water, where it is deposited. Participants may join the monks as they hike to disperse the sand.
Sacred Music Sacred Dance Robed in magnificent costumes and playing traditional Tibetan instruments, the Loseling monks perform the multiphonic chanting of ancient temple music and dance for world healing.
