The Drepung Loseling monks' Green Tara mandala in Library Hall, completed and destroyed on August 2, 2015.

The specific mandala that the monks created for Steamboat Springs in 2015 signified Green Tara. Green Tara is called upon for protection, health, happiness, wisdom, abundance and success for one’s life. Tara is the active principle of compassion, capable of bringing to fruition all activities, mundane or otherwise, that bring benefit to others as well as the principle female manifestation of enlightenment.
