Alecia Foster GLENDALE GALLERIA -- The creation of a Shi-Tro sand mandala in the Glendale Galleria has been delayed. The Tibetan Lamas, who were expected to begin work on the mandala on Thursday, have been delayed due problems with visas, said Linda Maxwell, co-founder of We Care for Youth, a sponsor of the project. The lamas were expected to arrive within the next week, although no date has yet been given. Those attending the mandala workshop on Saturday afternoon created their own personal mandalas, or a spiritual work of art used for worship, out of paper.

Alex Coolman DOWNTOWN -- It's an unlikely place to find an oasis of spiritual contentment: right in the heart of Glendale Galleria, wedged between Privilege and U-Topia. But it's in a retail space at the mall, between those two stores, that three Tibetan lamas have been slowly, painstakingly constructing a sand mandala every day this week. It's a massive and extremely elaborate design. They're creating it using small metal funnels call zang-bub, which release colored sand a few grains at a time.

Alex Coolman DOWNTOWN -- Enlightenment met conspicuous consumption Sunday as a group of Tibetan Lamas began work on an elaborate sand mandala inside the Glendale Galleria. The Lamas will be working on the mandala through Saturday as part of the Tools for Peace outreach program, which aims to build community and encourage peace. When it is completed, the mandala will be swept into the Los Angeles River. The public is encouraged to visit and contribute to a community mandala, which will complement the creation of the Lamas.

Amber Willard ADAMS HILL -- Artisans buzzed between rooms and an outdoor terrace at Forest Lawn Memorial-Park, Glendale on Friday, putting the final touches on the Shi-tro Mandala for Universal Peace. The mandala, a hand-carved intricately designed 3-D form consisting of a series of doors and other objects, has been in the works for almost a year. The ornate, 10-foot-tall, 12-foot-wide artwork will go on public display this afternoon at Forest Lawn's museum.

Jenna Bordelon ADAMS HILL -- Forest Lawn is sprucing up the flower beds, buffing the floors and setting up the metal detectors for the imminent arrival of the Dalai Lama Thursday morning. His Holiness will give his blessing to the Shi-tro mandala of Universal Peace. The mandala is a spiritual work of art used for worship by Tibetan Buddhists. The U.S. Department of State, the Glendale Police Department and the staff at the Forest Lawn Museum and Memorial Park are working overtime to provide a smooth flow to the proceedings.

I am not a Buddhist, and, in fact, I don't know much about the religion. My introduction came last year, as I watched the construction of the mandala at Forest Lawn-Glendale. I learned that the mandala is built to create harmony between the mind and the outer universe. An added bonus is that the environment in which such a mandala is built is permeated by spiritual blessings, and those who come into contact with it (even ordinary people like me) are transformed with an awakened altruism and compassion.

In a city facing concerns about youth violence and racial tensions, it seems the unveiling of a shrine as a symbol of peace is perfectly timed. The first Buddhist shrine of its kind built in the U.S. will be featured prominently at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale. Glendale's mandala is a Tibetan Buddhist artwork created by sculptor Pema Namdol Thaye. On Wednesday, Tibetan Lama Gyatso took in a preview of the Shi-tro Mandala for Universal Peace. The project is not expected to be completed until October.

Jenna Bordelon FOREST LAWN -- The human genome, divorce and parenting were the unlikely subjects of a seminar given by His Holiness, The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet Thursday morning at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale. The Dalai Lama was in Glendale to give his blessing to the Shi-tro Mandala of Universal Peace at Forest Lawn. The mandala is a three-dimensional sacred artwork that is the first of its kind to be built in the United States. As he bowed to the more than 900 people who had donated from $25 to $300 to see him, the worshipful gazed back at the unassuming man in the crimson and gold robes.
