Hey, everyone! You are about to enter a historical story about a mandala. I hope you enjoy!
Once upon a time, there lived a mandala who lived alone. One day, the mandala went for a walk. The mandala came along a little hole with golden light shining through. The mandala thought,”What is that golden light?”.
So the mandala decided to take a peek. The mandala was very surprised that inside the hole was an another mandala living alone. Furthermore, that mandala used sunlight to help bring peace to his home.
She noticed the other mandala looking around the small room and thought,”Goodness me, I didn’t see anyone peeking through the sunlight.” Even so, she invited the mandala in and she noticed the mandala enjoying the sunlight as well. So if you ever see a mandala in the sunlight, that could have been a distant relative of the mandala.
Here is some history about mandalas:
The word “mandala” is Sanskrit for “circle.” According to Mandala artist Charles Gilchrist, creator of “Sacred Geometry,” a wandering guru may have brought the first meditation mandalas to Tibet in about the eighth century. Mandalas have been found across the Far East, and Native Americans symbolism is based on the “sacred hoop.” Mandalas are considered to be of Eastern origin, but it would be difficult, if not impossible, to find any civilization without some awareness of the circle’s symbolism and the potential for spiritual self-examination.
