What is a Mandala?
Being an Indian, I feel great pride in saying that the word “mandala” arrived from Sanskrit language. In Sanskrit “mandala” means circle.
Mandala is blend of geometric and organic patterns used as symbolic representation of universe. Monks in Tibetan, Buddhism and saints in Hinduism have used mandalas as aid to focus in meditation.
How Mandala has evolved?
From the basic square shape, Mandala has evolved into Mandala art. Mandala art refers to mandala design created in circular form, be it sketched, drawn or painted. It can be on any medium – paper, canvas or any other fabric.
These days any intricate circular pattern is considered to be a mandala pattern. However a mandala pattern has a central point from where it grows into a symmetrical mandala design with repeated patterns.
Why people are connecting to Mandala art?
This is because Mandala is helps people to connect with their inner-self. Life is busy and there are so many distractions all around, and Mandala gives the piece of mind. Drawing a Mandala act as a relaxing therapy as its intricate pattern detaches you from things around you.
