"Meeting The Kalachakra Photo Journal" is an exquisite coffee table book filled with radiant, glossy photos revealing some of the magnificent details of the profound Kalachakra (Wheel of Time) Sand Painting. The Venerable Losang Samten created this mandala over a five-week period as an offering very much in alignment with Buddha Shakyamuni's original intention to offer it with a wish to bring peace to the Earth. Traditionally this sacred art is reserved for monastic ritual and prayer, however, this book documents a much more open approach with the creation as a cultural offering combined with teachings as well as stories. Photos display the daily progress of the mandala referred to as visual scripture, and is displayed in conjunction with simple explanations of the spiritual symbolism of the artwork. The photo journal also includes personal reflections as well as notes of the authors experiences that take place along side the mandala, reflecting the deep feelings evoked within herself and within the community members. An in depth study of the Kalachakra Mandala is a lifetime undertaking. "Meeting The Kalachakra Photo Journal" is an attempt to allow even the complete novice to delight in the intricacy of the sand painting while also receiving the ancient messages of inner peace, compassion, loving kindness, balance and dedication with joyous ease.
