Ceremonial chants and symbolic instruments filled the room, a Tibetan belief to promote world healing and peace.
Through a week-long ritual, Tibetan monks meticulously created a sacred mandala. Friday's ceremony marks the beginning and an end of the ancient spiritual art form.
Sweeping up the sands of the mandala represents the constant change of all that exists. The audience got to keep a piece of the mandala with blessings of personal health and well being.
The monks believe pouring the sand into the water disperses healing energies through the world.
The final performance of the Mystical Arts of Tibet will take place at 7 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center.
