Curve of Developing Consciousness
"Mandala" is a Hindu word
which means "circle within a circle." It describes
an object which draws the viewer's attention to a focal point.
Mandalas are used in meditation to achieve transcendental states of
consciousness. Mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern which represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the universe from the human perspective. Mandalas are used in meditation to achieve transcendental states of consciousness.
String Mandalas are constructed using a very strong polyester thread. The thread is woven by stretching it in straight lines between pins. The pins are arranged in precise geometric patterns. The beautiful curves which are created are optical illusions formed by the straight lines intersecting according to mathematical principles. The time involved to construct a design varies from a few hours to weeks depending on its complexity.
