A Mandala is a symbolic object from the classic Sanskrit language meaning circle. While it can have many meanings, the Mandala is thought to stand for wholeness. Mandala is of Hindu origin, but is also used in many cultures/religions such as Buddhism, Native American, Celtic, Judaism, African, Asian, Christian, Islam, and Polynesian. They are becoming more widely accepted as a healing tool in medicine. Research shows that coloring, creating, or viewing Mandalas can be meditative, creative, and stress reducing.
