There has been a Mandala revival as of late, with more people picking up on the sacred circle’s magical energy. Its origin is in Hinduism and when translated, Mandala means circle in Sanskrit.
The symbol has existed for centuries, and represents the universe as a whole. A Mandala’s presence is calming, healing and inspiring — much like a complete circle, where all ends meet and worries fade away. This is why the symbol is frequently used during meditation or yoga. Even if you don’t do any of these activities, there are other ways to incorporate the magic circle in your day-to-day.
1. Wall Art
Hang it up. There's nothing quite like a Mandala to complete a bedroom or living space. After a long day, all you need is a cosy, quiet spot. The colours of a Mandala are sure to soothe you. Time to rest up!
2. Couch Throw
If hanging it on the wall is too much of a hassle, why not throw it over your couch or table? Add a pop of colour to your space and at the same time keep your furniture dust free.
3. Better Than Your Regular Picnic Mat
Beach towels and polka dotted mats are so passé. Up your ante by the beach or at a picnic with a Mandala tapestry. Not only are they light and a breeze to carry around, they will also be turning heads and the colours make a great prop for photographs.
4. Use It As A Prop
And while we are at the topic of props, stretch your creativity and do it like this pair of lovebirds for their wedding shoot. There are no limits!
5. Your Travel Companion
When the wanderlust bug bites, pack this with you. Go on adventures, make friends, and let the Mandala be a source of warmth and comfort. Lastly, don't forget to share the magic of the mandala with a fellow traveler.
Love and Light always,
