What is a MANDALA?

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 used as symbol of the universe that encompasses concepts of many cultures and interpretations around the globe.

Why you should color Mandalas

It isn't always easy to be Mindful and focus on quietness.  Many enjoy the sense of calm that coloring mandalas and intricate patterns can bring.  If you have a racing mind, coloring mandalas can be a tool in your meditation or anxiety toolbox!

Try this: Print out a mandala coloring page and give coloring one in a try, color by color, spend a few moments 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. 

I hope you enjoy them and remember it when you just need to feel calm and focused.
