Colorful Buddha Mandala Thangka

Mandala means a circle. The Tibetan word for mandala is Kyilkhor, which means “center and surrounding environment .” In simple terms, it is a circle used as a visual aid for concentration and introversive meditation. Meditating using a mandala leads to the attainment of insights and helps to increase one’s concentration level. It also helps to activate forces within oneself, culminating in “Siddhi ” or supernatural forces. The mandala is the graphic representation of this process. It is not only theoretical but practical as an operational scheme involving a clear plan for the practical realization of the process within oneself. It thus becomes an instrument ( Yantra ). It is believed that by looking at a mandala, one’s soul is spiritually purified. Thus, a mandala represents the palace of purity, a magic circle cleansed of spiritual obstacles and impurities. The square of the sacred palace is enclosed in multiple circles of flame, vajra, and lotus. These three circles forming the outer rims of the mandala symbolize enlightenment, which the meditating person must gain before entering the illuminated palace. The mandala then consists of the inner square where the deity of the mandala resides.
The outermost circle, or the fire circle, is also known as the Fire of Wisdom.
It consists of the purifying fire. The diamond circle, or the vajra circle, expresses strength and fearlessness, and finally, the lotus circle expresses the open state of devotion necessary to enter the palace. These three elements denote the state of mind that the follower or the person meditating must possess before practicing dharma.
The name of the mandala is determined according to the deity residing in the center of the sacred palace.
