Both beautiful and enlightening, these 100 mandalas are among the most significant in history, derived from nature and the world’s great spiritual traditions. With each mandala comes detailed background information, as well as a suggested meditation to use as you color it in. The patterns provided for your brush or ink markers include the rose window from a Gothic cathedral in Switzerland; the tenth tarot card, known as the Wheel of Destiny; the symbol that stands for T’ai Chi; and dozens more. Over and over again, through the mere act of looking and drawing, the magical circles and gorgeous designs will provide spiritual sustenance and pleasure.
