Tibetan Monks return to CNY, schedule events throughout October

"[There is a] sense of community that grows among observers. Many people stay for hours to watch the construction, and return each day to see the progress," Coff said. "I've seen conversations start, and new connections being made by members in our community."

Once completed (Sunday afternoon), the mandala will be swept up and distributed in Onondaga Creek in an effort to bless the waters.

"Many people have told me that viewing the mandala and meeting the Monks made a deep impression on them, and that feeling stayed with them long after the Monks were gone," Coff said.

The Monks of Gaden Shartse will be in Central New York through Oct. 29. For complete tour details, visit gadenshartsecf.org.
