Mandalas for Power & Energy
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2003 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 192 pages
Think of this as a colouring book for the soul. As you fill each of these more than 90 hand-drawn mandalas with whatever colours strike your spirit, you'll feel an increasing sense of calm and concentration, peace and power. Mandala simply means circle, and these dynamically decorated symbols of life come from all religions and cultures. Many are thousands and thousands of years old: some, such as an Indian Mandoria (which represents the sweet core of an almond hidden in its shell), feature intricate, delicate, and swirling layers. Others, including a serpent swallowing its own tail, have a remarkable and compelling simplicity. All come with illuminating, poetic quotations and historical explanations. The world of images here includes the Medieval Sign of the Stone Mason from Germany; the Islamic Alhambra Star and the Jewish Star of David; traditional Bambara patterns from Mali; Japanese Butterflies; and Native American wickerwork of Men and Women of the Earth.
