The Relationship Deepens

In February of 2014 the Venerable Lama Losang Samten visited the Middle School to create a Sand Mandala on campus. Documentary filmmaker Daniel Chein captured the week long event on film, The Sacred Circle.

Shortly after the Mandala was completed, Ngodup Tsering Secretary of Education visited SBMS, touring classrooms, meeting with teachers and students, and being interviewed by the SBMS Teen Press (above).

In concert with the visits of Samten and Secretary Tsering in addition to the release of the film, SBMS is launching a new initiative to raise funds and to deepen relationships and understanding between the two cultures.

On March 6, 2017 Losang will return to SBMS. He will be working throughout the week to create a sand Mandala. We ask for visitors to come from 4:00 - 5:00 on Monday and Tuesday or Wednesday, March 8 from 5:00 - 7:00. Friday, March 10 we’ll have a special Sunrise Swim to return the Sand to the Sea. If you have questions about schedule or events please email Kara.
