Audio Thought for the Day: Sand Mandalas

A job like Stephen Leslie's brings the impermanence of life right to the fore. The end is the same for all of us. So for this week’s special feature, have a listen to our thought for the day about Tibetan Sand Mandalas, which are used by Buddhist monks to demonstrate the concept of non-attachment. The monks spend days creating an elaborate picture of a mandala using colored sand, once it is finished it is swept up and put in a nearby river or lake. Joe Mangrum spends his days creating sand paintings all around New York, at dusk he gets out his dustpan and sweeps them up.
