Transcript of Radial Name Mandala

WHat are they?
Mandalas are broadly defined as a geometric design that symbolizes the universe.

They are often used in Buddhist and Hindu practices.
what does the word mandala actually mean?
The word mandala is derived from the root manda, which means essence, to which the suffix la, meaning container, has been added.
basically the word mandala means a container of essence
Where does the mandala start?
A mandala starts in the center and the energy radiates outward.
..like ripples in a pond.
oh yeah..
these are made using sand.
The monks begin by planning the design and marking the surface.
Before a monk is able to work on constructing a mandala he must undergo a long period of technical artistic training and memorization.
He must know how to draw all the various symbols and know their meaning.
At the Dalai lama’s monastery, this training takes three years.
Each monk takes a section and begins working.
And keeps working..
..until it is finished.
