Mandala is not only an important Asian Art form but it also remains one of the most important symbols in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. A mandala, which is Sanskrit for "circle” or "discoed object” is found in almost all cultures throughout the world as a way to represent the circular nature of life and existence.

In Hinduism, the mandala is traditionally used as a way to meditate and connect to divine power through focused contemplation. Mandala can be understood in two different ways- Externally, it represents the entire universe and Internally, it shows various activities that are taking place within that circle. It represents different layers of universe like- the lived environment, the spiritual realm and the inner experience of man and how these layers can flow into and out of next.
