What is a mandala?

The word mandala is a Sanskrit word that literally means “circle” and it is often a circle enclosing a square or other geometric shapes that is used chiefly as an aid to meditation.
In various spiritual traditions, they may be used as objects of meditation, and the symbol represents the universe or holistic expression of the world and inner peace.
Tibetan Buddhists, Native Americans, Celtic, and Hindu cultures are among those that employ intricate circle designs in their spiritual art. Mandalas are employed for focusing attention and as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space.

We possibly owe the re-introduction of mandalas into modern Western thought to Carl Jung. He was a Swiss psychologist who pioneered exploration of the unconscious through his own art making.

Jung recognized that the urge to create mandalas emerges during moments of intense personal growth. Their appearance indicates a profound re-balancing process is underway in the psyche. The result of the process is a more complex and better integrated personality.

By pairing the powerful benefit of coloring with these spiritual designs, you might be able to stabilize,  re-order, and bring some peace to your own life.

    These are great, a great variety of wide spaces to color to more intricate designs. I remember taking my protractor and trying to create this design before this design even had a name. Such a great memory. Thank you. Blessings from Port Huron, Michigan.
