Mandala is Sanskrit for circle, polygon, community, connection.
The Mandala is a symbol of man or woman in the world, a support for the meditating person. The mandala is often illustrated as a palace with four gates, facing the four corners of the Earth. The Mandala shown here is connected with the Buddha Vajrasattva, who symbolises the original crystalline purity.
In the centre is a lotus blossom with eight petals, resting on a bed of jewels. In the next place are the walls of the palace with gates towards the four corners of the earth. The gates are guarded by four angry doorkeepers. Before the meditating person arrives at the gates, she must, however, pass the four outer circles: the purifying fire of wisdom, the vajra circle, the circle with the eight tombs, the lotus circle.

Everything in the mandala should be balanced, and should give an air of harmony. The point of a mandala is to help one travel on their spiritual journey easily. There are a number of ways to use a mandala, and each way is just a bit different than the one before. There are, however, some basics about a mandala that can help you when you’re just starting to use a mandala. The first thing you need to do before you meditate is to decide what your intention of meditation is. If you are intending to calm your mind, you will want a mandala that is for calming. If you are looking to find your beginning, you may want a Native American labyrinth mandala. Set the mandala in front of you and begin your meditation. Look at the mandala and allow your mind to swirl around the beauty of the designs in the mandala. During your meditation, if you mind begins to wander and you start thinking about the everyday, mundane things, focus your attention back on the mandala. Pretend that your mind is swimming in the mandala, and let the colors and designs swirl around you. As you slowly sink into the designs, your body and mind will begin to feel lighter. You can start to float and your thoughts will come to, more pure and more enlightened. Remember, every time you start to think about the everyday things, re-focus back on the mandala and allow yourself to sink into it. The better you get at meditating with the mandala, the more pure your thoughts will be. You may even find that you start seeing things in the future or understanding yourself in a way that you never have before.
