Buddhist monks meticulously create a sand mandala, Friday, Nov. 2, 2018, in the Lincoln Park Student Center. Several monks visited DePaul from the Drepunh Gomang monastery in Mundgod, India and spent the week creating the traditional art piece out of fine colored sand. Their visit was sponsored by the DePaul Center for Religion, Culture and Community and the Department of Religious Studies. (DePaul University/Jeff Carrion)
