Mandala Colouring – Its Origin and Meaning

“Mandala” is defined as “circle” in Sanskrit, the world’s oldest language. As part of the Hindu and Buddhist cultures, the mandala is a geometric design recognized as a spiritual and ritual symbol. It represents the universe, a receptacle for the gods and a collection point of universal forces. The circular shape of the mandala symbolizes the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected.

Mandalas are thought to represent various facets of the world, and are most notably used in China, Japan, and Tibet as instruments of meditation and symbols of prayer.

Mandalas carry great symbolic meaning and meditative significance beyond their vibrant presence, while exceptional as standalone works of art. They are usually created on paper or cloth, drawn on a threaded surface, bronze-made or stone-built.

Taking into account the digital age we live in, we offer PDF versions of mandalas to colour!
