Ever since I discovered them, mandala art fascinates me. The infinite possibilities of symmetric patterns flowing around a circular shape, be it monochromatic or colourful have brought me a lot of peace and a great sense of achievement.
Especially in COVID times with the near isolated lifestyle which begins to play tricks on your mind, it is very fortuitous that I stumbled upon mandalas when I did.
Whenever I feel the world closing in on me, or the whole situation begin to get to me, I seek the comfort and support of these circles and patterns to keep my thoughts and approach symmetrical too.
That’s not to say I work on mandalas only when I’m sad or despondent. In fact it has over time turned into quite the opposite trend. What started as a soothing balm to calm myself down has turned into a hobby that I look forward to. Rather than a reaction to feeling low, it has become a vaccine to not going to that dark place to start with.
Give it a try today! There are tons of inspiration out there. Start simple and watch the magic unfold on the paper. You will never look back!
Well written Moni.Any form of art gives you immense satisfaction.
