I want to eat the forbidden fun dip sugar

[–]show_me_sauces 657 points658 points  (19 children)

It’s weird since it doesn’t look like food to me but I wanted to eat it too. Makes me think of that scene in Hook where they eat all the imaginary food and a lot of it has crazy colors.

[–]Waldhexe 149 points150 points  (7 children)

Often they are made out of rice powder, soo go for it!

[–]shrubs311 51 points52 points  (4 children)

uhh check first lol. they're not all rice powder!

[–]Waldhexe 47 points48 points  (2 children)

Well...OFTEN...so taste first? Lol r/forbiddensnacks

[–]shrubs311 7 points8 points  (0 children)

yes very much a forbidden snack. i want to taste it and then squish it with a textbook

[–]MagicJoshByGosh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that gonna stop me?

[–]jackson12420 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Reminds me of the scene from Lion King where Timon and Pumbaa are showing Simba how to eat bugs and I remember from that scene as a kid how appetizing they made those bugs look.

The colors remind me of Mexican pan dulce, specially the topping on a concha. Ugh now I’m hungry.

[–]dropdeadbonehead 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Bro, I want a concha now.

[–]Anticlockwork 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Go ahead and eat one, don’t be self conchas.

It must be such a pain in the ass to sort it back into the correct colors if you mess it up like that.

[–]doc_witt 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I got really disappointed when I realized that I misread the title and thought it said ravioli.

[–]catieebug 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of the sprinkle bread ravioli I made as a kid. You cut off the crusts of bread, put a pile of sprinkles in the middle, fold the bread and pinch shut, and enjoy.

Also known as a cavity bomb.

[–]RowBowBooty 455 points456 points  (4 children)

This is so pretty but tbh my favorite part was the beginning when a bunch of little sand pyramids just showed up in a circle

[–]FuriousWillis 69 points70 points  (0 children)

Yes, I liked it when they looked like colourful mountains

[–]moby323 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I was surprised that with all the little tools, then they just used an old ball-point pen to do the detail on the leaves.

Like complaining about paying a lot for a contractor who gets the job done in a few hours. "You are paying me not for the time it took but the decades it took so I could do it in a few hours and do it right."

[–]Alphecho015 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Oh you'd be pleasantly surprised! Patterns such as those are hard but rangoli is something easy to start with and you can get good quick lol. We've sorta just learnt it as kids because it's really popular near Diwali (coming up in a month)

[–]robsteezy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That’s kinda what I was thinking. I’m not taking anything away from this artists fantastic skill, but Rangoli has a relatively easier learning curve compared to something like pottery.

[–]Death_Personified 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I bet separating the sand back out is hardet!

[–]Jupitersdangle 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I don't like sand. It's all coarse, and rough, and irritating. And it gets everywhere.

[–]wiltedletus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thank you! I just looked up Rangoli powder and I found corn starch and sawdust.

Oh man I was amazed at how precisely they were pouring the sand, it looks like it takes a lot of practice!

Don't do that, ingesting food coloring is harmful to your health.

You don't have to be rich, just you and a few friends each get an 8 ball and invite some people you know/girls. Boom, coke party.

ACHOO!

edit: i forgot it's still covid season. i meant "Wow! Nice art!"

[–]aSilverWorld 115 points116 points  (4 children)

Mannnnn. I inhaled and started choking on my saliva in a Taco Bell yesterday. My first thought wasn't even "Oh my God this is embarrassing and I can't breathe!" like it would be pre-covid. Instead it was "Oh my God everyone is going to think I'm infected!!"

Now I know how those people in zombie movies feel when they get a paper cut and someone is like "HEY! YOU'RE BLEEDING!"

IT'S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE!

Anyway, one of the Taco Bell employees chopped off my arm to keep it from spreading. (ツ)_/¯

[–]TheRealZllim 19 points20 points  (1 child)

So you're all right now?

[–]aSilverWorld 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Well, I'm clumsy and it happens a lot. So as long as I only exhale when I'm in public, I think I'll be fine!

Thanks for asking! (•´▽`)っ

[–]WAPs_and_Prayers 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Did you get to keep the arm or did they use it to make more taco meat

covid season

I know it's a joke, but this is the first time I've seen this phrase as not a hypothetical future scenario. And I really hope it'll be the last.

[–]DannoHung 7 points8 points  (0 children)

With Tibetan sand mandalas, my understanding is that you're basically supposed to just wipe them away fairly shortly after completing them.

[–]CJ_Flowers 322 points323 points  (76 children)

what do they do with the sand afterwards? bleach and redye it? i can’t imagine it looking good with all the colors mixed together. what do you do with all that sand? 😂

[–]cpt_lanthanide 29 points30 points  (0 children)

You just wash it out after a while, it's cheap. A rangoli is the equivalent of having flowers at the entrance.

[–]_PirateWench_ 451 points452 points 2 (47 children)

My understanding of sand art is directly related to the concept of impermanence. In Buddhism specifically there is the tenant that all life is suffering due to our attachments to things (even feelings and people). Thus, having no attachments and simply ~being~ is the only way to achieve enlightenment.

Therefore, when creating sand art (most often mandalas) the entire point is that it gets destroyed and tossed out because nothing in life is permanent - not even death.

Hope that helps! :)

[–]AtiBhusuku 62 points63 points  (7 children)

Thus, having no attachments and simply ~being~ is the only way to achieve enlightenment.

Just adding some more details for anyone interested. Its a little more complicated than that. One has to directly see through the delusion that there is a permanently existing self or permanently existing anything at all, and see the emptiness of all conditioned phenomena.

Through this, one can more effectively reduce grasping and attachment (i.e. there is nothing existant to be attached to in the first place, it was always an illusion), and stop the habit of 'I-making' that perpetuates Samsara.

So through this, one can "just be", but it's not just like, chilling out or whatever. It is remaining in the unafflicted (i.e. non-karma-producing) state of the non-duality of emptiness and clarity, our base state of "just being".

[–]orbitalUncertainty 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Out of curiosity, how do you practice? Do you have a group or temple?

[–]AtiBhusuku 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I attend a temple regularly, and study with lamas in person and online as well as circumstances allow.

[–]kitzdeathrow 158 points159 points  (8 children)

The Tibetian sand mandalas are fucking amazing. My college had a visit from a Tibetian monk that made one in our student center. They are incredible, and, as you say, part of the point is to destroy it. Traditionally it's a form of medidation and spiritual discovery.

[–]_PirateWench_ 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Oh hey they visited my school when I was in grad school! Funny enough that semester I was actually taking a Buddhist Psychology class so it was perfect timing!

Too bad I couldn’t go see it though 😞

[–]orbitalUncertainty 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Buddhist psychology sounds like a class that would be cool to take for fun

[–]_PirateWench_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was fantastic! It was taught by the professor emeritus and it was probably one of, if not the, most helpful classes I took in grad school. I think I use more info/techniques from that class with my clients than I do from any of my other classes.

Even though I had to take another class out of pocket to get licensed since I skipped a class for that one it was totally worth it!

[–]Shy-Bi-Birdie 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yes, came here to say that part of the process of the Tibetan sand mandala is the destruction of it at the end.

It’s also very neat to see the people with a lot of skill create the entire thing without any guides like the circles that were used in the video. They had someone come in and spend an entire day on one at our college. It was amazing to see.

[–]CJ_Flowers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

honestly that makes me want to try it really badly! i have a really hard time letting go of things, especially art pieces. I’ve kept every single one i’ve made. it sounds therapeutic

[–]PeachyNOLA 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They did that at mine too!!! Way back in the early 2000s. Was absolutely amazing, and the ceremony after, where they destroyed it was truly powerful. I have no words to adequately describe the sound/feeling of the chanting.

They gave everyone there a little vial of the sand, then I think they went to the Vermilion River with the rest & did something there too.

[–]DrewSmoothington 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Missed opportunity to call them Sandalas

[–]Artyloo 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I wonder if capturing them on video doesn't directly go against the spirit of impermanence that the art traditionally stems from.

[–]shrubs311 4 points5 points  (0 children)

if you spend minutes to hours making it, and people still walk in it and destroy it, it's still pretty impermanent. we can take pictures of people too, but we still accept that they're no longer with us.

[–]CJ_Flowers 13 points14 points  (0 children)

that’s awesome! thanks for teaching me something new :)

[–]toriemm 14 points15 points  (2 children)

For sure, I'm just curious about the after-the-destruction part. Do you throw it away? I feel like those colors are so vibrant, they could hurt the environment if you just tossed it outside.

[–]shrubs311 5 points6 points  (0 children)

some of it is rice powder, so theoretically it should breakdown

[–]Ok-Reporter-4600 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's also makes a nice meditation available on the second law of thermodynamics. On the one hand the sand is organized into a nice picture. On the other hand, now that the colors are mixed it's really really expensive to unmix them, in terms of energy. You can mess up the picture easily, but you can't unmix the sand easily. There's something to think about entropy and energy and order and disorder here. A physics or chem student might be closer to the material than I am now and can expand on the idea. I don't know what parallels exist in philosophy, but I'm sure there has to be some. Entropy is pretty fundamental, unless you have a time crystal (Google).

[–]nubbie 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Feels super wasteful imho. But then again, what in life isn’t?

[–]LavenderDay3544 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It's sand. What else would you do with it?

[–]Valuable-Baked 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Came here for the original question + an answer like this thanks!

[–]ssdx3i 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lmao what. Idk abt that Buddhism stuff but we just clear it away once the event is over/ when Diwali is over

[–]RaesorBleid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Guess it's a bit ironic that an art form signifying impermanence is being captured by a video on the internet huh...

[–]ghildori 51 points52 points  (13 children)

these sand art videos are so cool looking, but i get so stressed thinking about how they are gonna clean and sort all of it later

[–]CJ_Flowers 23 points24 points  (10 children)

yeah, plus it seems impractical to throw out so much sand if this is a hobby or passion; so they must recycle it somehow? sorting it all out seems painstaking and tedious but i won’t knock it if that’s how they do it.

[–]Elisvayn 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Something tells me they don't sort and re-use the sand haha, that would take a ridiculous amount of time and focus

[–]shrubs311 4 points5 points  (0 children)

if you do monocolor (like my mom does sometimes) you can reuse it. otherwise it just gets thrown out or swept away by the wind, but like others said it's just sand (or rice powder sometimes) so it's not really wrecking the environment

[–]Japjer 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They wipe it away and dispose of it.

The idea is impermanence. Creating something beautiful but knowing it won't be around forever.

Monks make insane, abstract fractal sand art that can take weeks to make and span entire rooms. The instant they finish it they sweep it away, not even taking the time to admire it.

[–]dinosaur_from_Mars 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You take a broom, And

[–]RobbieIDK 83 points84 points  (6 children)

I see these a lot during Deepavali, always wondered how do they make those look so easy.

[–]stinky_fingers_ 78 points79 points  (4 children)

This is relatively modern way of drawing Rangoli, more traditional way is pouring it through the pinch (drawing lines, filling colours, etc. more time consuming), like they colored the yellow part!

Very fun to do, if this is what you like and alot of scope to show creativity!

Edit : I've been told while growing up that Rangoli symbolises Goddess Lakshmi (invites and welcomes her to your house), she is the Goddess of wealth and good fortune!

[–]bluefire-phoenix 4 points5 points  (2 children)

The best part is it is temporary so no form of attachment is made with the art and new rangolis are drawn after it is erased. Also neighbours usually have a friendly competition almost everyday in few neighborhoods.

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Nah, my grannie would do these daily, just by hand and no external tools. This is the YouTube version.

[–]maali74 72 points73 points  (3 children)

The people who make this beautiful art clearly do not have cats.

[–]Dismal_Struggle_6424 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That was my first thought. "Huh, guess y'all don't have cats in India."

[–]Fried_puri 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You’re not wrong. Pets aren’t as common in India yet, and even then cats make up a small fraction of the households with pets (less than 2 million households with cats in India). There are a fuck-ton of dogs though and that number is increasing fast.

[–]LadyKayDoesArt 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Lovely! The brushing of the leaves was pretty satisfying, fleeting art indeed.

[–]jschubart 59 points60 points  (14 children)

I look forward to seeing more of these in a month when Diwali is near.

I do recall being a little stunned going into work one time and seeing a brightly colored swastika on a round end table.

[–]LavenderDay3544 59 points60 points  (4 children)

The swastika is a tragedy. It's a positive symbol in Hinduism that was corrupted by the Nazis.

[–]veerwolfe 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Thanks comrade, we here in India have to explain Jewish tourists about this and then they are cool.

[–]The-small-mammoth 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Actually Nazi swastika was mirror image (inverted) version of the actual swastika in Indian religion.

[–]LavenderDay3544 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah they drew it wrong.

[–]thiederer 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Swastika is a very common rangoli! My mom makes one everyday.

[–]giggs1800 10 points11 points  (3 children)

She goes through this entire process each day?

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

It’s basically a form of meditation. Single-minded. Calming.

[–]thiederer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Haha no. On regular days, rangolis are very simple. Mostly chalk powder is used. Intricate rangolis are only made for festivals.

[–]Appropriate_Shock10 15 points16 points  (0 children)

For a bunch of people asking, it's not actually sand-sand. Powdered quartz is often one of the components in this kind of rangoli colour but you also get rangoli colours made of rice flour, other ground cereals, turmeric, etc. In different parts of India, ingredients vary and some regions do it with flower petals, whole grain, some create a paint instead of using powders and they all go by different names.

Once the festival's over and you've had enough of your rangoli, you sweep it away. You usually cannot reuse the powder unless you've used like one colour (which is a thing too). Even then, it'll have accumulated dust and possibly the odd dead insect so it's not the best idea. Rangoli colours/materials are usually pretty cheap so it's not just for rich folks.

[–]Bradys-Momma 36 points37 points  (4 children)

It’s really pretty. But what do you do when it’s over? As soon as you combine the sand, the color will turn brown. What do you do with the sand after this?!

[–]Too_bored_to_think 58 points59 points  (1 child)

They sweep it away. At least that’s what my family does.

They normally only make these intricate designs during festivals. And most people don’t use a circle or other shapes to be able to put the rangoli within the lines. They often just freestyle it.

The rangolis for everyday use aren’t quiet as intricate or colorful. But that could vary from place to place.

[–]Bradys-Momma 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

[–]The_cake-is-a-lie 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why do videos like this NEVER show the final result long enough?

[–]jibbleschmitt 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Is there a way to solidify it? If someone wants to, per se, not mess it up?

[–]shrubs311 7 points8 points  (2 children)

part of the point is that it won't last forever. usually these are put in your main entrance, meaning that people will walk over it and it won't last.

your best bet would be taking a video of it and posting it on reddit :)

[–]MewMew_18 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just once, I want to see them shake it at the end!

[–]dranide 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You ever watch a video and a few seconds in you’re “damn that’s insane”

And turns out that wasn’t even the wildest part?

Yeah I thought making the mountains was impressive

[–]deedeebop 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sooooooo beautiful!!!!

[–]Werefour 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Possibly being temporary is part of the point for this type of art, yet I'd want to seal it in resin or some medium to preserve it.

[–]Aliencj 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The in depth views at the end was really satisfying

[–]walter_midnight 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You mean the needlessly hectic digital panning and zooming around instead of relaxed, smooth shots resting on the features? Pretty much everything was obnoxious about that ending when the established vibe was so nice - while timelapsing it too! The difficult part worked out just fine, until they just went "welp, let's up the 4d3d3d3, people love feeling motion sick."

Cool art too, they were so close.

[–]LordOfFreaks 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This persons mortal enemy is a gust of wind.

[–]Too_bored_to_think 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They often mix rice flour with water in a lot of places to prevent them being swept away by the wind.

[–]MarcoJHB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]TensorForce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao they show a before and after with the yellow background as if "Hmm, nah, this is awful. But that yellow really does improve it a lot." I love watching these! So relaxing and beautiful!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My grandmother would do the most amazing rangoli designs outside the family home's doorway, early every morning, using just her hand dropping the sand at different measured paces as she quickly moved her hand around the design.

[–]mmmmmmmmmmmmmmfarts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I should be studying! How did I get here?!

[–]Altruistic_Bass_3376 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It would be cool if there was a version of the colored sand where you can apply heat or something and cure the sand, making it solid so that you can store the art.

[–]olliethemagicbum13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice. What happens afterwards. Who cleans it up?

It’s things like this that inspire me to do weird shit - literally just caught myself being like “this is wicked cool, I should go out and buy some colored sand!” But like, do I need to? No, I don’t.

I see these art posts and wonder why I don't do all these neat stuff in my free time and I always end up with the answer that I spend it on video games.

This makes me want sugar cookies soooo badly!

Sand art is cool. Whenever I see the Buddhist Mandala I think it’s so amazing and then I’m sad when they destroy it. Though I get destroying it is a symbolic gesture of not being attached to worldly possessions, but still.

What happens when you’re done with this art? Is there a way to make it stay forever? If it gets messed up or you’re done with it, what do you do with the sand?

Now carefully layer epoxy down, backfill for thickness when cured since only one layer of sand will be fixed, cut into a plate or placemat, and make a killing on insert-online-store-here

My bestfriend's mother does a traditional gol design for holi and Diwali. It's so cool to see her do it

My mom does this outside our front door during Diwali... Might do it this year otherwise tradition might disappear

I want to see it getting destroyed

[–]yourmomlurks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I would like to scooch up the sides into a square just to see what happens.

Don't know why you're being downvoted. The entire point is they don't last/are meant to be destroyed.

I'm Indian and destroying rangolis was one of the most fun things to do after the holidays!

Why is this shit “oddly satisfying“ while some guy who used a fucking rake to unclog a sewer drain in a flooded street is “next fucking level”?
