harmony and excellence in everyday life

MANDALA STENCILS

In the ancient language, the word mandala signified primarily a certain artistic form enclosed in a circle or arch, but also the whole world, the sacred circle, the centre or circle of life. Its basic form consists of squares inscribed into a circle whose sides are symmetrically aligned to the sides of the world. Because it is based on a circle, it is a sign of excellence and unity. The mandala is an important element of initiation or the rite of passage. It is supposed to shape our internal spirituality. It is regarded as a symbol of human life, in which man is represented as the centre of the world that surrounds him. It perfectly reflects the harmony and order prevailing in nature. This pattern is present in almost all cultures around the world. Although the mandala was first mentioned in India, patterns based on a circle, ambit or any other symmetric form have manifested themselves since the very beginning of human culture. Nowadays, they enjoy widespread and ever-growing popularity in many different parts of the world.
