Brenda Lee: Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree
Buddhist monks can spend up to a year creating these beautiful designs completely made out of sand. They are called sand mandalas. They must place each grain of sand individually. This is to teach patience. Then as soon as they complete the mandala, they destroy it , and throw the sand into a river (thus sharing the beauty with the world). They destroy these mandalas to teach that nothing in our world is permanent.
