Sanskrit for sacred circle, mandalas are an ancient art form dating back to Tibet over 2,500 years ago. The Tibetan Monks saw the mandala as more than a circle divided into an ornate design, they saw it as a representation of the Universe; a blend of different symbols and colors coming together, bonded by its center, to form in harmony.
Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning ”circle”. This sacred diagram or meditation symbol is usually circular and is a symbol of the Universe and its energy. It is used in Eastern and Native American medicine for healing body, soul, and spirit. Meditative contemplation of the mandala can bring the inner light of the soul to consciousness, activate hidden powers of the mind and open the heart chakra to the healing power of unconditional love.
By recognising and connecting to the mandalas in the natural world around you, you may begin to understand how many cultures consider the designs to represent universal truths.
