The word “mandala” comes from India in Sanskrit. Translated it means “circle”, but the meaning of the mandala goes far beyond a geometric concept. It represents totality, structure, center, unity, balance, search for peace, it is a relationship of habits that can lead you to the construction of a model of organized structure. Describing both material and nonmaterial realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call Earth, Sun, and Moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.

“The integrated world view, represented by the mandala, throughout some Eastern religions, has begun to emerge in Western religious and secular cultures. Raising awareness of the mandala may have the potential to change how we see ourselves, our planet, and perhaps our own life purpose. “Excerpt taken from Journey to the Center by Bailey Cunningham.
