In partnership with the Bethesda Project, watch and reflect as scholar, artist, and former Tibetan monk Losang Samten creates a sacred sand mandala. At sunset, help dismantle it to close out the festival.
The Bethesda Project provides emergency shelter, housing, and supportive services to thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia every year
Losang Samten is an American Tibetan scholar, sand mandala artist, former Buddhist monk, and Spiritual Director of the Tibetan Buddhist Center of Philadelphia. He is one of only an estimated 30 people worldwide who are qualified to teach the traditional art of Tibetan sand painting.
