In response to the September 11 tragedies, twenty Buddhist monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery constructed a sand mandala (sacred painting) at the Sackler in 2002. This seven-foot-square mandala, one of the largest ever created in the West, was offered for the healing and protection of America.
