(Vancouver, WA) -- Tibetan Buddhist monks will build a sand mandala this week at Cannell Library on the Clark College campus in Vancouver. The monks will use scrapers, funnels, and tubes to put the colored grains of sand in place. It will take five days to complete and then, after a ceremony, the mandala will be destroyed. Previously, mandalas were constructed at Clark College in 2012 and 2020. The opening ceremony is at noon today and the closing ceremony will be held on Friday starting at 1:30 p.m.
