Mandala

Sand painting.

The Tibetan word for mandala is kyilkhor.  Kyil means ‘center,’ khor means ‘fringe,’ ‘gestalt,’ ‘area around’… Things exist interdependently, and that interdependent existence of things happens in the fashion of orderly chaos.

~ Chogyam Trungpa

Each person’s life is like a mandala — a vast, limitless circle.  We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.

~ Pema Chodron
