What is a Mandala?
A Mandala represents simultaneously, an inner landscape and physical realm, within which every element of experience is unified, balanced and complete.
In Tibetan tradition, it is considered a great blessing to see a mandala, as it conveys a deep impression of wholeness, bringing about healing and peace.
Each element of the color particle sand mandala has precise symbolic meaning. The structures portrayed are the structures of human consciousness. The surrounding circlerepresents dynamic awareness. The square symbolizes the four directions, the physical world. At each side of the square, a gate is constructed: these represent the four immeasurables: loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity; through these practices one enters the sacred ground.
