Mandalas have long been used to help people meditate by moving past the “Monkey Mind” that distracts from true focus. From a human’s viewpoint, mandalas represent a microcosm of the universe. A small piece of the big picture, a mandala (especially its center) gives a focal point where the mind can expand.
“Mandala” translates to “circle” in Sanskrit and is a powerful symbol for balance, wholeness, and harmony. As seen in atoms, tree rings, galaxies, and crystals, mandalas are unmistakably a pART of nature and have become a sacred symbol in every culture. Despite how far our minds may travel, the geometric (and often symmetrical) shapes tend to draw attention back towards the center, both literally and metaphorically. As a form of meditation, mandalas are healing tools. Participating in drawing, coloring and looking at mandalas can boost the immune system, reduce stress, combat depression, reduce pain, lower blood pressure, and stimulate the release of melatonin – a hormone that can slow aging and promote good sleep. Recent studies have shown mandalas are especially useful in helping deal with coping in regards to illness, enhancing physical functioning, and helping quit harmful habits (like smoking) by relieving stress and occupying the mind (and hands). Mandalas have the potential of changing how people see themselves, the planet, and even their life purpose. Based on Hindu philosophy, the Sri Yantra (the triangular symbol in the center of this mandala page) is an object of devotion. What a perfect symbol to focus on while relating to this piece!
