Yoga Jones: Do you know what a mandala is?
Piper Chapman: Um, those are those round Buddhist art things?
Yoga Jones: The Tibet monks make them out of dyed sand laid out into big, beautiful designs. And when they’re done after days or weeks of work, they wipe it all away.
Piper Chapman: Wow, that’s— that’s a lot.
Yoga Jones: Try to look at your experience here as a mandala, Chapman. Work hard to make something as meaningful and beautiful as you can and when you’re done pack it in and know it was all temporary. You have to remember that— it’s all temporary.
Back to work tomorrow.
I'm going to work hard to make something meaningful and beautiful this year.
And when it's done, I'll pack it in and know it was all temporary.
