Welcome to the Exhibit

This June, a group of Tibetan Buddhist lamas will create exquisite sand mandalas for World Peace in the Pacific NW — in Seattle, on Whidbey Island, and in Bellingham. We cordially invite the public to observe the monks while in process, after completion, and during the dissolution ceremony. 

This will take place over two days in each location. At each location, a public talk will be given by Dza Kilung Rinpoche on the purpose of mandalas, and their use in meditation, as well as background on the special role of sand mandalas. All are welcome to this free event!

Due to limited parking on site, there will be several options:

Catch a shuttle ride to the temple. June 9 ONLY, from 12 noon to 4:30 pm.
Two shuttle stops:
-Park n Ride next to the Clinton Post Office, or…
-Ferry Commuter Parking Lot, just above the ferry terminal. The Commuter Lot is an easy walk from the ferry, though up a flight of stairs.

Walk or bike from the Clinton ferry to the temple, about one mile. Walking up a flight of stairs and through the commuter lot provides a short cut.
