Some Information on the Mandala
What is a Mandala?
A mandala is a sphere with a midpoint, and displays a field of elements, which are interconnected and express different facets of human life and the mind.
The word mandala comes from the Sanskrit language and it signifies 'circle' or sometimes 'center'.
The mandala is sometimes considered a sacred map pointing us back to the center and wholeness and represents an alchemy of certain interconnected and related energetic patterns and potential doors into wisdom.
A mandala is a reminder of unity, wholeness, and the journey back to the center. When we are the center of who we are, the periphery of the mandala changes and effects the experiential field in each moment.
The mandala is the representation of the formless essence, and the infinite unending display of potential and possibility of phenomena manifesting in each moment.
It can be helpful to see the whole universe as a mandala, and it is a helpful tool in recognizing that our moment-to-moment experience is the display of the mandala through feelings, sensations, emotions, thoughts, perceptions, and actions.
