What Is Mandala And How To Use Mandalas!

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.

Top 6 Facts About Mandalas

The Fascinating Meaning of Mandala Tattoos ‘Mandala’ is derived from ancient Sanskrit, and generally simply means ‘circle’. However, if you’ve ever seen a mandala, you’d know that it’s much more than just a shape. In fact, they have a deep and mystical meaning in the ancient religions. Having a mandala tattoo could enable one to express several aspects of their identity. If you ever notice such a tattoo, remember that it may have the following meanings: 1. The Aesthetics: Circles are present all around us in nature. Flowers, raindrops, and rainbows are only a few examples. Hence, a mandala tattoo could be sported simply for the way it symbolized nature; a beautiful and fractal pattern. It could also be a signal towards larger or more basic building blocks of our universe, such as planets, the atom structure, etc. 2. Meditation: Since a sphere or circle is so perfect and never-ending, a mandala also serves as a tool for meditation. In this way the artist or even a monk would have a point of concentration, which is the circle’s centre. They would also be able to ponder upon all the things that could fill up the circle yet gravitate to this inner point to find harmony and balance. 3. Impermanence: In the religion of Buddhism, some monks practice the ritual of drawing mandalas in sand, colored rice, or powder. This practice could take hours or even days, and is erased within seconds. In this manner, the monk is taught about the impermanence of this life, this world, and all that is in it. 4. Life Cycle: A mandala could also be used to represent the existence of humankind. With the centre, the mandala symbolizes the inner human consciousness. The designs and patterns all come together to represent the motives, events, actions, and thoughts surrounding a human being. Hence, a mandala tattoo could very well mean that the individual is essentially the center of his or her own existence. Whatever he or she does is focused back on themselves. This could be taken to mean karma, self-awareness, or any such concept. 5. According to Color: Mandala tattoos may also have a meaning defending on which color they are or which hues they contain. We’ll take a look at some of the colors so that it’s easier to understand what they might mean: • Red symbolizes strength and passion. A person bearing this color in their mandala may be trying to fight against their inherent laziness or expressing their vigor. • Black in mandalas symbolizes reflection. Perhaps the person with this color in their mandala needs some time to ponder redirection or a refocusing of their life. • Green is the universal symbol of nature and growth. One could express their love for the earth through this color • Violet is a color symbolizing wonder, childish curiosity and fulfillment. A person trying to recapture the joys of their childhood may want such a hue in their mandala. Conclusion: Needless to say, a mandala is more than just a pretty shape or design. They’re wonderful to look at, and can have a very deep significance as well.
