We hear from Losang Samten, a master sand mandala artist and the spiritual director of several Tibetan Buddhist Centers in North America, including the Chenrezig Tibetan Buddhist Center of Philadelphia. A National Heritage and Pew Fellow, Samten once served as the personal attendant to the 14th Dalai Lama. He is also an expert teacher of intricate sand art forms, which birth a variety of temporary sacred spaces. Listen to his story of coming to the United States to create the first public sand mandala in the West in 1988 and learn about the healing powers embedded in this spiritual practice.
