As Emory celebrated Tibet Week back in March, Buddhist monks spent hours each day crafting a sand mandala representing Green Tara, which remained on display in the Michael C. Carlos Museum. On Sunday, July 24, the community gathered for a closing ceremony for the mandala, which was then destroyed to symbolize the impermanence of life. See more photos from the ceremony.
