    What is a Mandala?

    Mandala is a Sanskrit word that loosely translates as “circle” or “center.” We often associate mandalas with circular forms with repeating colors or patterns that radiate from a center point. Mandalas can be found everywhere, both in nature, and throughout the art of many cultures. In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, a mandala is an object of meditation to aid in one’s spiritual development. It is meant to represent the universe, the cycle of birth-life-death, and the interconnectedness of all things. Creating a mandala can be a calming, meditative experience that leads to feelings of happiness, peace and well-being, eases stress and anxiety, and activates creativity and improves focus.
