Mandala is a term of Sanskrit origin, which means quite complex diagrams or symbolic representations, used in both Buddhism and Hinduism. Mandalas are diagrams or schematic and symbolic representations of the macrocosm and the microcosm, used in Buddhism and Hinduism. Structurally, sacred space (the center of the universe and support of concentration) is generally represented as a circle inscribed within a quadrangular form. In practice, Hindu mandalas are linear, while Buddhist mandalas are quite figurative. Most cultures have mandalas, often with a spiritual intention.
