In tandem with Chaksam-Pa’s performance, Tibetan monks from the Sera monastery in India completed a sand painting of the mandala of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, in the window of the Desai Matta Gallery at CIIS. Work on the sand painting took place over the week before Trolley Dances and the public viewed the painting during gallery hours and throughout the weekend of Trolley Dances.
