Just What Are These Tibetan Monks Building?

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is visiting New Orleans this weekend for a series of pubic speaking events. This past week a group of Tibetan monks gathered at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to construct a mandala, which will be completed on Friday morning and then ceremonially deposited into the Mississippi River that afternoon.
