Bayley Shana February 19, 2021 mandala coloring
Mandala colouring books are for fun, for meditation and even for colour therapy.
The Psychoanalyst Carl Jung observed the mandala designs as a manifestation of the unconscious self. He used mandala designs to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality. The Sri Yantra in lotus formation is considered most sacred of the mandalas. The lotus Sri Yantra mandala is considered sacred not only because it transcends the darkness of the water and mud where its roots are, but also because of its perfectly symmetrical mandala. In Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism the mandala usually depicts a landscape of the Buddha land or the enlightened vision of a Buddha.
The first book we purchased had 39 pictures of mandala drawings. A small box of basic coloring pencils started our adventure. We worked with the primary colors of red, orange, blue, green, violet. black, white, and a few other tints which were in the small box. The initial starting stage began with the techniques of our elementary school years. The instructions included the color wheel which we started paying attention to after getting bored with the basic colors.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy your kid his very own Mandala Designer Drawing Machine and have the most creative and fun Christmas ever. You guys will not regret it.
I use mandala coloring as my primary active meditation technique. It’s the easiest way to learn how to meditate along with being inexpensive and fun. Coloring also allows you to open up your creative side and be expressive. Licensed art therapist use techniques like coloring to help patients with stress relief and to deal with anxiety issues.
Think of coloring as a creative quick-fix
