Mandala Meditation with Bethesda Project

In partnership with Bethesda Project, watch and reflect as scholar, artist, and former Buddhist monk Losang Samten creates a sacred sand mandala. At sunset, help dismantle it to close out the festival.

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.
