What is Mandala?
A word mandala (from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit: lit, circle) is a religious and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, symbolizing wholeness, the universe and can be viewed as a model for the organizational formation of life itself an universal diagram that tells us of our relation to the eternal, the life that extends both behind and within our bodies and minds.
The usual mandalas form is square with 4 ports containing a circle with a center spot. Each port is in the general form of a T. Mandalas usually show radial balance.
Mandalas are used for examination persistence allowing the person meditating to match one with the universe. Only a few are able to reach this state of mind from just analyzing a mandala. The relationship behind the production of a mandala can have significant meaning for many people whether they are Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Pagan or of any other spiritual orientation.
Mandalas can be performed by individuals to express their journeys through life. Mandalas can also tell a fantasy of where a person has been. In some instances, they will show the individual’s path in life. Groups can create mandalas that will show what they should be doing in order to improve and develop as a group.
How to use Mandala?
You can use mandalas in various ways. The intention of the mandala is supposed to be visually appealing so as to engage the mind in such a way that disturbing thoughts are unable to get into and a spiritual nature surrounds the individual seeing the mandala, which in turn allows the person a greater knowledge or awareness, almost as though standing hypnotized. This lets the occupied mind to take a break while the imaginative mind is allowed to run free.
So the mandala is originally used as a form of reflection to gain knowledge from within.
Choose a mandala that attracts to you. You should know the purpose of the mandala you have chosen or set your own application before using it for meditation.
Once the purpose has been established, you can begin concentrating on the mandala. Let yourself to take in the beautiful designs, allow your mind to roam. Just like watching a light flame in candle treatment, if your mind starts to believe about the usual mundane things, just take your focus and concentration back to the beauty of the mandala. Let the mandala engage all your attention, by falling into it and looking into the colors, float in its patterns. As you begin to fall into the mandala, you will encounter a feeling of brightness and intuitive feelings may arise. Rest, let thoughts and feelings come to you. Swim with it. If you begin to feel panic, feel lost, awkward or if you start imagining about those “mundane” things again, just rest and refocus your thought back to the mandala.
Each person feels different emotions. But if you have a comfortable manner whilst focusing on the mandala you have certainly achieved what was expected. You should come apart with the clarity of the intention you or the particular mandala set before the meditation.
