What is a Mandala?

Mandala, a Sanskrit word that means "circle", is an abstract design that is usually circular in form. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, geometric shapes and organic forms.

They can also contain recognizable images that carry meaning for the person who is creating it.

Mandalas arose in Indian and Himalayan religious traditions as artistic ways of representing the spiritual universe. The ancient Hindu scriptures think of time as circular, having a creation period, a period of flourishing existence, and a destruction that leads to another inevitable creation.

Much work was done by the Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung to expand the definition of mandala to make it relevant to the spiritual and psychological life of the modern western person.

In 1973 Jung wrote that, “a mandala is the psychological expression of the totality of the self”

In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality.

Modern mandalas we can see in coloring books or contemporary artwork are used as means to reduce stress, connect deeply with oneself and appreciate forms of beauty in the world.
