Mandala

Mandala

Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means "circle". Mandalas have been used to focus in meditation in Hinduism and Buddhism and have spiritual and ritual significance. The mandala is typically in the form of a circle enclosing a square and often bearing symmetrically arranged representations of deities. Most famous are the Tibetan sand mandalas, painstakingly created out of coloured sand, sometimes by hundreds of monks, to be immediately swept away after completion.

The instructions for using a mandala for meditation are simple. Just look at it without staring and without thinking about it. Let your gaze be gentle and soft. Allow yourself to blink normally. When you are looking at a mandala, the only thing you should be doing is looking. Not thinking, daydreaming, visualizing or planning your next date.

Eventually, your eyes will tire. Just close them and rest them. Look at the mandala in your mind's eye. Then open your eyes when you are sufficiently rested and gaze once again at the mandala. Do that process for five or ten minutes when you first start. Use a timer. You may add time to your mandala meditation sessions in five minute increments until you are comfortable with up to fifteen to twenty minutes at a time. The time during which you rest your eyes is included.
