Mandala takes shape at library

Nawang Jamyang, left, and Nawang Tenphel, right, put the finishing touches on a sand mandala Friday afternoon at the Vancouver Community Library — just before destroying the traditional Tibetan Buddhist artwork later that evening. The monks are from the Drepung Loseling Phukhang Monastary in southern India. They have two more stops on their tour, in Portland and Los Angeles.
