One way the Buddhists embrace this idea is in the creation of mandalas. People can spend days or weeks creating this intricate designs made of sand, just to wash them away. Ever since I learned about this, it is something that I have tried to keep with me so that if something in my life breaks, I try to not get too upset over it.
When I saw this nail art on Pinterest, it reminded me of a mandala and I was inspired to recreate it.
Every time I looked down at my nails I got happy. They are so bright, fun, and colorful that it's hard not to smile. I had a lot of fun creating these, and even more fun wearing them.
