A group of Tibetan monks ended a week-long stay in Evansville on Friday.
The monks constructed a sand mandala at a yoga studio in Evansville.
The mandala is a sand sculpture with symbols representing the world’s major religions.
It’s designed to show the love the monks say everyone desires.
The monks are on month seven of a nine-month tour of the United States.
After working on the mandala for a week, the monks ceremonially dismantled the sculpture and poured the sand in the Ohio River.
The ceremony was designed to have the sands spread healing energies wherever the waters take it.
