Tibetan Buddhist monk Ten Pa PhuntSok begins creating the sand mandala that the monks will work on the next five days at the Allen County Public Library downtown.
Tibetan Buddhist monks chant a blessing for the sand mandala they hope will transform an ordinary mind into an enlightened mind. It will be taken apart Monday evening and the sand scattered in the St. Marys River.
