Mandala comes from Sanskrit, meaning "circle" even though it uses many other geometric patterns. They offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The meanings of mandala depends upon color, geometric elements and culture. Often times, Mandalas are used for meditation. Allowing the mind to fully relax and the mandalais to be visually appealing so as to absorb the mind in such a way that chattering thoughts cease, and a more philosophic or spiritual essence envelopes the observer which in turn leads to higher consciousness or awareness. In short, a mandala can be seen as a hypnotic, letting the creative hemisphere of our mind run a little more free while our analytical mind takes a little nap.
Mandalas have been used by lots of cultures. From Buddhism to Hinduism, Aboriginal to Hopi…even ancient alchemy – to be sure, mandalas have served mankind for centuries.
