Literal Meaning of Mandala!
The word Mandala literally means “circle”. Mandala derived its roots from Sanskrit word that closely translates to mean “circle” or “center.” In colloquial use, “mandala” has become a common term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that symbolizes the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. The fundamental form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Mandalas often found to have radial balance.
Profound meaning of mandala and mandala art form
When we hear the word mandala, our mind forms a picture of a circular design that has repeating colors, shapes, and patterns radiating from the center. Mandalas are deliberately created to be precise, carefully measured, geometric, and perfectly symmetrical, or in contrast, free-flowing, organic, and asymmetrical. Mostly drawn in circles, Mandalas can also be drawn in squares.
This is all about the physical appearance of Mandalas. Now let us talk about the implied meaning of it.
“The ‘circle with a center’ pattern is the basic structure of creation that is reflected from the micro to the macro in the world as we know it. It is a pattern found in nature and is seen in biology, geology, chemistry, physics and astronomy.”
It is truly said that when you discover what Mandala is, you will start to see them everywhere around you!
A Mandala represents wholeness. It is a cosmic diagram that is constantly reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. The mandala appears to us in all aspects of life, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon and more obviously the circles of life encompassing friends, family and communities.
The circular design of Mandala symbolizes the notion that life is never-ending. Have you ever realized that Mandalas were and are everywhere; they are the structures of our cells, our world and our universe. This couldn’t have been explained more beautifully that whenever there is a center found radiating inward and outward, there is wholeness – Mandala!
Mandalas are found in Nature in the form of snowflakes, flowers, and shells. The cyclical patterns of the moon and seasons are also seen as mandalas.
