Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.
Feel absolutely shit, sad and many other things? Home alone? Tap dance!

ATTN: everyone interested in body positive yoga, fathleticism, or just plain ol’ fat activism. Fat Yoga is halfway through their fundraising goal to start offering online classes! Please please please consider supporting this campaign. And if you can’t support it financially, would you be a dear and signal boost?

I always feel like I should apologize for my personal posts, but then I realize that I have Ultimate Blog Power. I can write an essay about how sad I am and then post ten pictures of dogs rollerblading. You can’t stop me.
