Mandala or dimensional design, is a kind of sand painting and one of the most famous and delicate forms of Tibetan Buddhist art. Usually, the mandala is made for important Buddhist occasions.

It is said that Buddha himself taught his disciples to make the mandala sand painting 2,500 years ago, and this exquisite religious art has been passed down through generations up to now.

Lamas usually go out to look for special white sand and dye it in different colors. Then, they spend weeks, even months depicting the mandala.

Recently, lamas of Riku Monastery, Kangding County, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province have made an exquisite mandala for worshiping.
