Mandala Painting!

 Mandala is an ancient art which has been used throughout various cultures as a method of self-expression. . In fact, "mandala" is a Sanskrit word that means "circle".It is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms. A circle also denotes balance, perfection nd eternity as the distance from its center to all points on it remains the same, from wherever it is measured.

Draw the circles starting from centre. You can use pencil also for drawing the circles. Once the circles are drawn, you can start filling them with any design you like. This art can be learnt by anyone who has little interest in drawing. Mandala is an excellent form of meditative art in present time as well.
The time duration also depends upon the design you choose. The more intricate designs might take longer time. But, I did enjoy the process of painting it! . 

The best thing about designing your own mandals is that you have the freedom to choose whatever shapes and colors that you feel express your sense of self and your view of reality. Mandalas are great tools for meditation and increasing self-awareness. Here Iam showcasing Few mandalas I tried !
