Mandala, literally meaning circle or round (in Sanskrit) - a magical form with radial balance, a shape without beginning or end - a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relationship to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. In Buddhism, the mandala represents the nature of the “pure land, enlightened mind” - used in support of the meditating person. The “circle of life” has been depicted in mandala-like forms by cultures throughout history, from Aztec sun stones to Christian altars. The circle is also associated with eternity, balance and perfection - the last one mainly because the distance from the circle’s center to any point in its outline is the same. New age mandalas represent an organizational structure of life itself. A spiritual journey that is never ending and forever connected.
