Mandala (literally meaning a circle) is a visual guide for concentration and introversive meditation. It can lead one on a path to attainment of insights and activation of supernatural forces (Siddhi). The Mandala is the graphic representation of this process. It is not only theatrical but also practical as an operational system that involves a clear plan for realization of oneself.

Generally, mandala is sketched inside a circle. There are four types of circles, a flame, cremation, the wind and the lotus flower.

The flame of burning fire is the sign leading to destroying impurity and the unacknowledged contained within us.
The circle of cremation is where in some examples the people are bitten by wind energy’s such as a flower called padmavati which is the sign of cleanliness and purity.
The circle of wind (sometimes symbolised by the vajra) is the sign of knowledge or enlightenment and the difficulties and challenges one must overcome to reach a state of being.

After crossing the three circles the square room can be navigated and one can reach their balanced inner harmony and affirmed connection with nature and the cosmos …their spiritual temple.

In conclusion, it can be said that a man who can avoid anger, desire, greed, pride and jealousy will succeed in entering the centre of the mandala, a place of purity, wisdom and authentic being …Nirvana!
