 [noun]
definition
sand stupa

notesA form of 'sand play and art' in which children are encouraged to bring river sand to their wat at the end of the Dry Season, to renew sand carried away on feet during the year, lest the wat become a hole in the ground. The sand is formed into stupas and other Buddhist motifs, which are then washed away by the coming rains, giving a lesson on the impermanence of life.
