A message of love and compassion is being shared by two special visitors to Queenstown this week.

Tibetan Buddhist monks Geshe Jamyang Sherab (left) and Karma Gyasey have returned to the resort for a third time to create a sand mandala.

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition involves creating and destroying mandalas made from coloured sand.

This year the monks are creating a Chenrezig Buddha mandala. Chenrezig is the buddha of compassion.

That was something everybody could do with a bit more of, organiser Kaari Schlebach said.

"In this day and age, if everybody had a little bit more compassion and understanding, the world would be a more peaceful place."

The 10-day event will culminate in a closing ceremony at 2pm on Sunday at 26 Arawata Tce, Sunshine Bay. Entry is free, but koha is welcome.
