The word „mandala” means a circle. But it is far more than a simple shape as it symbolises the cycles, wholeness and perfection of life. We find mandalas in both oriental and western cultures as well as in nature- a flower, a shell of a snail, a rose window, an ornament of a cupole, a Buddhist mandala or a Celtic spiral line. Various traditions have been using these forms to broaden the mind and for healing, as the rhythm of the forms, the symbols and colours of the mandalas can harmonise resonances of body and soul, stimulate our natural healing process, calm down and evoke thoughts. The creating and colouring of mandalas is also a meditation, a healing process, a well-known therapy.
