What is a MANDALA?
If you are unfamiliar with what a mandala even is, let's go over the basics of this symbol.
The word Mandala means “circle” in the South Asian Language; Sanskrit–the oldest of all attested human languages.
A Mandala is a layered circle motif, most often symmetrical and balanced with a square. Drawn as part of a traditional ritual or used as a meditative or spiritual tool for personal growth and mindfulness surrounding the transient nature of life.
The circular design is not only iconic in one culture or tradition, but also so multifaceted that it is used as symbol of the universe encompassing concepts of many cultures and interpretations around the globe.
Discover more about the cultural history of this tool. Like, who first called it a mandala and why is it used in spiritual guidance / relaxation practices around the globe! Read fascinating history of the Mandala

Why you should color Mandalas
It isn't always easy for everyone to be Mindful and focus on quietness. I have personally found that that it takes long-term practice and intention. I don't believe I will ever be able to quiet my mind without having a calming activity.
There are some helpful tools I keep in your back pocket, one of them being adult coloring pages. The sense of calm and focus that coloring mandalas and intricate patterns can bring can calm a racing or anxious mind with little effort is my jam!
If that, is you too, coloring mandalas can serve as an excellent tool. Coloring intricate designs and patterns can not only serve to bring you into the present state of mind for meditation and mindfulness, but keep you there longer.
Try this: Print out a mandala coloring page and give coloring one in a try! Color by color, spend time reflecting on the moment, the beauty of imperfection and the gratitude you feel while focusing on the circular motif and pattern.
Each of these hand-drawn mandala coloring pages has its own unique personality, not completely symmetrical, but perfect in their own way, just like you.
This mandala coloring page is just bursting with pattern. Pattern dots that were intricately doodled and swirly elements that allow you to follow the curves of the lines with your pencil crayons.
Coloring TIP: This design has a lot of intricate details. While it is fun to color in, it is best to stick with a limited color palette when coloring in the dots pattern background! Color all over the page with one color and then move on to the next, it will help you with the color distribution!
If I number my favorite mandala coloring pages from this collection of printable images, this one would be my number 2, favourite design!
I really enjoy the scallop & swirl designs as well as the fact that this one is uneven and a bit wonkier than the rest. The swirl in the background is what makes it all POP out!
This coloring page features a Geometric marquise shape pattern design for the pattern and a simple line and teardrop repeat!
A black and white swirl pattern background, a circle adorned with ruffles and a lovely sunflower mandala design in the forefront.
TIP: Did I mention, once printed out these mandalas could easily be cut away from the intricate pattern designs on the background leaving you great material for your junk journal or for making custom greeting cards.
If you enjoy coloring intricate details, finding it calming like I do, you are going to appreciate the tiny, cute flowers sprinkled in the background–each calling out to be colored with the sharpest colored pencils.
Coloring tip: I really like blocking in the color of the background first on these types of patterned pages.
This coloring page is meditative because of the repetition in the decorative design pattern. You will have fun coloring this one with earth tones!
The pattern design is made up of ALL the above mandalas, each one overlapping each other in a lovely pattern design.
TIP: Get creative! This page will look lovely if each mandala is colored in a monochromatic color scheme. Shades of light and dark, it will make each design pop right out.
