What is a mandala? Mandala is a Sanskrit word that loosely translates to mean “circle” or “center.” We often associate the word mandala with the well-known circular designs that have repeating colors, shapes and patterns radiating from their center. Mandalas come in many forms. They can be precise, carefully measured, geometric, and perfectly symmetrical. In contrast, they can also appear free flowing, organic, and asymmetrical. Mandalas are often drawn in circles but they can also be drawn in squares. Once you discover what a mandala is you’ll begin to see them everywhere!
Now is the time to get a jump start on your contest entries and events by checking out the MandalaFest party planning details!
