Day three with the Drepung Loseling monks in Library Hall
August 16, 2010
Today, the monks worked in astounding detail atop the emerald green base layer they had laid down the day before. Nearly 1,000 visitors came to Library Hall to admire their work.
Out and about…
In case you were wondering…and you haven’t already noticed them cruising the Yampa River Core Trail or along Lincoln Avenue…yes, the monks have been getting out to enjoy Steamboat Springs in their spare time.
On the community sand painting front, Steamboat took the monks’ challenge to add more detail seriously. Everyone put their creative juices to work in outlining the words along the painting’s frame.
BONUS: Interested in a little more insight into our visiting monks? We learned today that Gala Rinpoche, the monks’ leader, has his own blog. On there you can even meet his dog, who he has regrettably had to leave at home in India.
