Exploring Buddhist Europe (video)

Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly; RT (Russia Today, Nov. 2011)

Kalmykia is in the steppe region in the south of European Russia. It is the only indigenous European-Buddhist republic in the world. An international Buddhist festival was being prepared for in a temple in Kalmykia's capital, Elista. Monastics, practicing a Mongolian form of Vajrayana Buddhism from Siberia, are shown preparing a sand mandala. The abbey is a palace that may serve a temporary abode for an "enlightened" deity in Tibetan cosmology. It is made with colored marble sand, which is applied to canvas through cone-shaped tubes. Follow the monks' white path on RT/twitter and YouTube.
