The word literally translates to circle in the Sanskrit language. The roots of the Mandala art lie in the Buddhist culture. The symmetric shapes of the mandala design signify an aligned universe. Mandala art became even more popular after the trending reels and videos on the social media platforms were uploaded in abundance. Mandala art therapy improves patience, focus and aids in concentrating.
We at TCC organized a special session on the significance of painting for our circle family and invited expert artist Deepa Shah to facilitate the session.
