What is a Mandala?
A mandala is a symbolic representation of the whole universe - a microcosm representing the macrocosm. When we paint Mandalas we experience various levels of ecstasy in different stages of our journey. Imagine the present space which we are in as the manifestation of the unmanifest. The easiest way to unite with the unmanifest is to use a key which opens a door through us. This is where mandala paintings help us - they are sacred geometric patterns which act as the key which opens this door. in India Hindus and Buddhists have been exploring the use of it for millennia, while in the west such sacred geometry have been explored by great artists such as Leonardo Da VinciUse of practicing mandala painting
Like the Japanese tea ceremony, this is one of the easiest ways to meditate and explore the Self and experience the unmanifest. It helps us achieve:
:- Calm mind
:- Improved focus and attention
:- Integrated vision of life and the universe as a whole
:- Improved problem-solving skills
:- Stillness and Equanimity
:- Increased Compassion towards Self and Others
