One of the richest visual objects in Tibetan Buddhism is the mandala.  Mandala (Sanskrit mandala “circle”) is a term of Hindu origin, but is also used in a Buddhist context.  A mandala is a symbolic picture of the universe.

The mandala represents an imaginary palace that is contemplated during meditation.  Each object in the palace has significance, representing an aspect of wisdom or reminding the meditator of a guiding principle.  The mandala’s purpose is to help transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones and to assist with healing.
