Slideshow: Mandala sand ceremony

Tibetan monks from the Dreprung Loseling Monastary dismantle the sand mandala they created at The Aspen Museum to a standing room only crowd. They explain that it is done as a lesson in the impermanence of life. Blessed packets of sand are given out and the rest is taken to Herron Park where the sand is released into the Roaring Fork River as a message of peace to be carried throughout the world.
