Buddhism is the featured religion during World Interfaith Week events Feb. 4 at Keuka College. Members of the College community will be able to create a Buddhist prayer bracelet from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Dahlstrom Student Center. At 4 p.m. the Venerable Lama Tenzin Yignyen will dismantle the sand mandala he has been creating since Jan. 31. On his previous visit to the College, the mandala was ceremoniously dismantled to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists. Members of the College and community took turns sweeping the sand into a container, and Mr. Yignyen poured the sand into Keuka Lake, so its waters would carry healing energies throughout the world.
