Mandala, pronounced as “mah-ndah-lah”, is a powerful symbol that is mostly used in ceremonial rituals, in worship, in art, and architecture and creative art therapy. In today’s word, the term mandala is used to refer to any pattern or diagram that has radial balance. Mandalas come in different types, forms, and varieties. For example, ceiling mandalas are usually seen on the ceilings of holy structures such as temples and mosques. Besides them being colorful and decorative, they’re also believed to offer blessings and protections.
