Mandalas, their origins and history

Mandalas are drawings done in concentric forms and have been used since ancient times to achieve personal harmony. They are used as a visual aid in meditation, both to observe and to paint. Mandalas originated in India, but other symbolic geometric graphics have been found in many other cultures like the Native Americans (Navajo, Aztec, Incas), or the Australian aborigines.
Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning circle, and Buddhist monks create complex mandalas to commemorate special occasions, sometimes taking weeks to build using a base of tinted sand that eventually the wind breaks apart. In this essence the work is called Karma Yoga (Yoga of action), meaning that for them it is the action that is important, not the result. A mandala that you love spontaneously, that you have chosen is actually the one you ‘should’ have chosen or almost that it chooses you. This has the energy and vibration that you will benefit you or the person you’re thinking of. Each mandala has its ‘owner’ when I paint, and of this there is no doubt
