ep74: Impermanence, Buddhism and Sand Mandalas, with Paula

Episode 074: Impermanence, Buddhism and Sand Mandalas, with Paula was released on the Back to the Drawing Board podcast on Monday, November 23, 2020.

In this week's episode I am talking with Paula de Wijs, the co-founder of the Maitreya Institute in the Netherlands. We are talking about the practice of sand mandalas, why and how their made, the role of art in the practice of Buddhism and why the monks and nuns would spend days creating an artwork just for it to be destroyed in the end.

Interested in how to make a sand mandala, why sand mandalas are destroyed, the history of them, and what they represent? Then this is the episode for you! In a larger sense, you'll also learn about the comparison between eastern and western art with the amazing Paula.
