Monks bring art form to campus

photo Sitting on blue and teal pillows, a Tibetan monk draped in a maroon robe leaned close to the ground to touch up a yin and yang symbol the size of a thumbnail.

The symbol is a tiny detail in a colorfully intricate sand art piece called a "mandala" that 11 monks are creating in the UofA Bookstore.

Live Culture

You've been there before, sitting at a traffic light in your Geo Metro. A car pulls up next to you, windows tinted, strobe lights flashing and subwoofers pumping; just for a second, you think, "I can take him."

You're wrong, and he's long gone. There's a lot more behind these tricked-out street racers and the students who built them than your three cylinders can take. [Read article]
