What is a mandala

What is a mandala?

The word mandala is from Sanskrit, a classical Indian language developed over 2,300 years ago. Loosely translated to mean circle.

Mandala In Nature:

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.

Flowers, the rings found in tree trunks and the spiraling outward and inward of a snail's shell all reflect the primal mandala pattern.
