"everything is in flux and nothing abides;Heraclitus
everything flows and nothing stays fixed;
everything is constantly changing and nothing stays the same"
A mandala is a sacred geometric figure that represents the universe. The traditional Tibetan sand mandala, when completed, is deliberately destroyed. The sand is poured into a nearby stream or river to distribute the positive energies it contains. This ritual reminds those who painstakingly constructed the mandala of the central Buddhist teaching of the impermanence of all things.
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
― Siddhartha Gautama
