Mandalas – FREE Coloring Pages
(For All Ages)
Mandala is the Sanskrit word for sacred circle, polygon, community, or connection. Native American, Hindu, and Buddhist Tantric practices have used Mandalas for thousands of years as an aid for meditation, and to express illuminated states of consciousness and for healing the body, mind, and spirit.
The dictionary defines a mandala as any of various ritualistic geometric designs symbolic of the universe; a generic word for any geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically, a view of the Universe from the human perspective.
Mandalas can be colored for fun, relaxation, intent, focus, or meditation. Here is a nice collection of resources around the web for free coloring pages:
