Akshobya Sand Mandala

Buddha Mitrugpa (Akshobya) Sand Mandala

From the 14th to the 30th of January 2010, the monks of the Dakpa Khangtsen Drepung Loseling Monastery near Mundgod in South India and Geshe Tenzin Demchok, representing the World Maitreya Karuna Foundation of Australia, gathered upstairs in the Byron Community Centre and created this beautiful sand mandala representing Buddha Mitrugpa (Akshobya in sanskrit) and then swept it up and poured it into the sea.

There are more photos in my Buddha Mitrugpa Flickr set.
