A Few Mandala Hall Updates on Khandroling

The primary work this season on the Mandala Hall continues to focus on the final phase of preparing the surface and coloring the design on the Mandala Hall floor.

The following photos show but a fraction of the work undertaken by Jim Smith and volunteers who prepared the surface by washing  and laying out the grid of the mandala in order to draw and tape the concrete. Further explanations forthcoming. The following photos are by Paula Barry and Efrem Marder.

Here is Jim Smith's method for precise drawing of the mandala's dimensions.
