"Liberation Through Sight"
Gaden Tsawa World Peace Tour

October 9-11, 2012
UCI Student Center

Over the course of three days, the monks of Gaden Jangtse Monastery will create the Amitabha sand mandala. A mandala is a cosmic diagram that represents the dwelling place or celestial mansion of a deity. It is believed that simply seeing one of these sacred mandalas leaves a powerful positive karmic imprint on our mind stream. The three-day tour will also include an opening ceremony, meditation session with Dr. Geshe Tenzin Lobsang, tour leader and one of the most well known Tibetan physicians, and a talk by Barbara Sarnecka, cognitive sciences associate professor, on Zen meditation.

All events are free and open to the public. Click here for more details or contact the Buddhist Association at UCI, or
