Monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery will create a colorful mandala inside Popejoy Hall this week.

A ceremony to consecrate the site will take place Wednesday at 1 p.m. and will last about 30 minutes. It will include chants, music and mantra recitation.

The process of making the mandala takes about two and a half days and can viewed for free from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

On Saturday, the monks will dismantle the mandala during a special ceremony from 1 to 2 p.m.

A program called The Mystical Arts of Tibet is also scheduled for this weekend. For more information, visit popejoypresents.com or unmtickets.com.
