Indeed, Mandala Art is more beautiful to look at but there is more about Mandala than just aesthetically pleasing looks. Simply put, Mandala is a circular geometric design with ritual or spiritual significance. The word Mandala comes from an ancient Sanskrit language, which means a circle or the center in English and symbolizes that everything in life is cyclic and it is never ending be it the life cycle or nature cycle. So the Mandala is more related to the spiritual aspect of life. However, Mandala is more than that and scientifically it can help to build up concentration and focus in life.

In recent years, people’s interest in Mandala has risen partly because of the Mandala tapestries being used as the most beautiful home décor.

uses of the printed Mandala

Despite their differences in the art and the form, they still go and hold together.


Human Mandala

Human Mandala is a form of Yoga spiritual pose that involves the symmetrical postures by the humans. People typically sit or lay down in a circle with their feet or hands touching each other in order to make a closed loop. This is similar to what a printed Mandala Tapestry looks like.

The printed Mandala Tapestry is also a symmetrical sheet that is beautifully designed with various colors apart from being symmetrical. The printed art has designs that are intricately made with various colors like the dyes. Even the human Mandala depicts the colorful posture because of the different colored clothes that the people wear. \

And in human Mandala you will also see people trying to make different poses in order to get the perfect Mandala Shape. So this is how teamwork in making the Mandala of the printed one and in doing the yoga of the human Mandala helps in building the teamwork. The similarities are not exhausted in nature because the shear size of the Mandala of human and printed one are both in similar size.
