~Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (from tonyuberoi.com)
One of my favorite paths to introspection is the mandala. Designing within the circle is both calming and meditative.
Mandalas have their origin in India but were mainly used by Tibetan Monks as a spiritual tool towards enlightenment.
There are many wonderful websites devoted to mandalas. Here is a link to my favorite:
MANDALA OASIS Cheryl is a wonderful, creative and loving spirit that I've just recently become acquainted with in the Blogspot network. Her blog is informative and visually exciting and a good place to start if you're interested in learning more about mandalas.
I hope you'll give this meditative art form a try, and I hope you'll find yourself centered in "Happy Creating!"
