Mandalas are beautiful circular figures with symmetrical elements. The word mandala comes from the Sanskrit (an ancient Indian language) and literally means: ‘magic circle’, or ‘magic wheel’. According to old oriental wisdom they serve for inspiration and inner enrichment. They make you aware of the infinity of existence and the connection with everything around you. The Mandala is a primal symbol that has no beginning and no end. The beautiful drawings and patterns are an important element in the performance of traditions, meditations and rituals in, among others, Buddhism and Hinduism. The lotus flower is widely seen and used in Hinduism and Buddhism; in these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolises purity, purity, your beauty, inner growth and the connection with the universe. The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning for the ‘growth towards enlightenment’ and is mainly the result of the growth process of the flower. The lotus flower nestles in the mud under water and then grows very vigorously towards the light, after which we can observe a beautiful flower on the water. We can also experience this process as a human being, then see the mud as ignorance and suffering and as you grow your hand becomes wiser and once the lighting has been achieved, you beam like that beautiful lotus flower.
