Have you ever thought of a combination of meditation and art form? Originating in ancient Indian and Tibetan traditions, Mandala art is a spiritual and geometric design that holds deep cultural significance and has since then spread worldwide. Derived from the Sanskrit word for “circle,” mandalas are intricate patterns created within a circular frame.
Artists create intricate patterns using various materials like sand, paint, or coloured pencils. The process of making mandalas is meditative and therapeutic, allowing individuals to focus their minds and find solace in the rhythmic repetition of shapes and colours. They symbolize unity, harmony, and spiritual enlightenment. Mandalas are often used for meditation and mindfulness practices, as their symmetrical patterns help calm the mind.
