Mandalas

What is a Mandala?

A Mandala is a painting used by those who are visually inclined to meditate.

If one chooses to use these paintings for the purpose of meditation you should find a comfortable place to sit. Then focus on the center white dot. When your inner dialog begins, as it does for all of us, do not try and stop the thoughts just let them go by. As your concentration becomes more focused the color on the Mandala will start to pulse and sometimes the images on the painting will start to move.

If you trust that you are going to a place of clarity and calm the color will disappear and you will see only white light. You will have literally "seen the light": you may lose the light off and on however, keep your focus. When you finish your meditation you should feel a since of relaxation, clarity and peace.

In today's fast moving and fearful world, meditation will give you a refreshing and rejuvenating experience.

I became interested in Mandalas in a curious way. A show of 4th century Tibetan Mandalas from the Portala Palice came to San Francisco when I was in art school. As I walked around the show I was suddenly frozen in front of a Mandala. I knew it so well that I felt I had painted it.

A few years ago, I went to a psychic for a past life reading. I was a skeptic. The physic told me of several lifetimes and then said, "In the 4th century you were a Mandala painter in the Portola Palace in Tibet."

I have painted only Mandalas since that day.

When one person touches others with peace and hope, the benefits expand exponentially. Higher conscientiousness can save our world.
