How To Draw a Mandala
I first discovered about them when I was working with PeopleMaps and studying Jungian Psychology. Jung was a great believer in their power. There was a period in his life where he created a new mandala every day. He kept them all in his Red Book. I bought my own copy of this a while back because it’s just so inspirational.
For many their introduction to this subject came about when thinking about getting a tattoo. And there is some incredible tattoo artists using this style of art.

The History of Mandala Art
People have been creating mandalas for thousands of years. It is a Sanskrit term that means “circle” and examples of it can be seen in most ancient civilisations but particularly in China, Tibet and India.
The symbolism is very strong and some people have made a life’s work out of studying just one form. For example, the Tai Chi symbol can be considered to be a mandala and it is full of meaning. As a symbol it is used to describe everything from philosophy to martial arts.
Tibet is strongly associated with mandala art and Tantric Buddhism has made great use of them for hundreds of years.
