This website is provided for teachers and students who wish to learn more about Tibetan sand mandala practice, particularly in preparation for a visit to the St. Lawrence gallery during the exhibition. It is also our goal to create a community of inquiry, reflection, and exchange among all students interested in the exhibition’s themes so that even those who are not planning to see the exhibition can benefit from its contents using classroom activities and visiting "virtual" images. In addition, we offer links to websites about Tibetan Buddhism and sacred arts.

further, including background information on Tibet and Buddhism, art activities to use with students,
a vocabulary list, resources, and more.
