The painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism.

For the next three days (March 12-15), the monks will painstakingly lay millions of grains of sand on a flat platform to create the sand-painted mandala. We encourage you to visit with the monks during their visit and observe this intricate and spiritual process. Free and open to the public.
Organ at Davidson – Annual Bach Birthday Bash
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm
Davidson College Presbyterian Church Sanctuary
Organists Jane Cain and Michael Rowland will guide us through a program entitled “Arnstadt to Leipzig: Bach’s organ Music from Start to Finish. Who was Johann Sebastian Bach? A spiritual giant, or a temperamental and stubborn court musician? A famous organist and improviser, or a reluctant teacher at a boys’ school? An innovator, or a reactionary? This program will trace Bach’s life story and his philosophy as we follow his organ compositions from earliest youth through old age. A meet-the-artists reception will follow the program.
