Massive Mandala On The Beach!
As we were driving along the coast, somewhere between Half Moon Bay & Santa Cruz, when we came across this huge mandala created on a sandy beach.
A mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, circle) is a geometric concentrically structured pattern representing the cosmos or the universe. In many spiritual traditions the creation of a mandala is a practice to invite focus, meditation or an induction into trance state. Mandalas are also used to establish a sacred space.
What I found fascinating was that the artist of this massive, detailed work spent hours creating it, knowing the tide would return to wipe it clean within a few short hours. However, for the time it was visible, it most certainly established a sacred place of fine beauty on the beach for all to enjoy. If anyone reading my blog knows this remarkable artist, please thank them for us!
