The word mandala is a Sanskrit term that means “circle” or “discoid object”. A mandala can be defined in two ways: externally as a schematic visual representation of the universe and internally as a guide for several psychophysical practices that take place in many Asian traditions, including meditation.

I present in this series a few of the personal mandalas that I have made with a photographic image. I also offer the creation of your own personal mandalas with any photographic image you many send me or I am also able to photograph this image for you and then create this mandala. Please consider this if you are looking for a unique gift for yourself or a friend. 

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
— Buddha
