Mandalas are cool. On this site, mandalas are like descriptive diagrams - only with a level of artistic abiguity that allows them to stand as both art and information. The difference between a diagram and a mandala is thus identical to the difference between a sign and a symbol, discussed elsewhere on this site in the essay Content + Context = Meaning. That difference being defined by the amount of explanation given... or taken, by anyone viewing either diagram or mandala. Thus it is that a mandala holds knowledge. But as with all symbolic language a "key" of explanation is required to unlock the mysteries. Most of the mandalas on this site have text to explain what each artistic element is supposed to represent. This page is here to help you find these mandalas, which are scattered here there and everywhere around this site. They are presented in no particular order... just find one that looks interesting and read what it's about.
