A mandala makes for an excellent visual tool for your spiritual journey. Several cultures throughout history have used mandalas. Buddhism Hinduism, Aboriginal, Hopi, and ancient alchemy all have histories of mandala use.
Mandalas, from the Sanskrit “circle”, have served an important purpose for ages.
“Each person’s life is like a mandala – a vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.” —Pema Chodron
Although monopolized by squares or triangles, mandalas have coaxial structures. Each mandala has a unique meaning and can help you on your spiritual journey in many ways. For example, a mandala can aid in troublesome meditation. If you suffer from “chatter brain”, a mandala can help you refocus and wash away your wayward thoughts. If you find your brain crowded by thoughts of grocery lists and work problems, simply look at the mandala and let it absorb you.
