Tibetan monks perform Buddhist ritual at Texas State

By Scot Wortner

Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery visited Texas State to bless the area with the creation and destruction of a Buddhist mandala. The week-long visit concluded with the lamas leading a procession across campus and pouring the sand remains of the mandala into the San Marcos River where its blessings may spread around the world.
