Dear members,

The Protected content in Rome is promoting 6 days of the countries culture (23.02.-28.02., 11am - 8pm).

A monk (Geshe Soepa) is by now already busy creating a sand mandala during these festivities. A sand mandala represents our lives really. We all know that we won't live forever, however, we study, we're competitive, we marry, we open factories, we create, etc. ... then one day, our bodies transform into something else...

As the monk begins the sand mandala, he knows that he, himself, will brush all the sands together when it's finished, but he won't make one mistake while he's making it. Once finished, the sands are all mixed up, and they transform into something else. For the ones among us who believe that we’re all just energy, the sand mandala ceremony represents energetic transformation, and that death is not the end, we’ll not just go away…

Tso Pema is a non-profit organization, especially supporting the underprivileged in Tibet so they can have a future. You’ll find the market, and the mandala in Trastevere, offering next to singing bowls and natural incense sticks many, many handmade objects and dozens of other heart-warming things in the middle. :)
