    Gaden Shartse Tibetan monks use tools called chaku to create a sand mandala at the Cozmic Cafe in Placerville on Friday, January 3, 2014. The chaku is a metal funnel with ridges along the sides. By dragging a stick along the ridges, the chaku vibrates enough to coax small amounts of sand out of the narrow end and onto the table.
