Learning the Mandala Visualization


The mandala (the word is Sanskrit for “circle”) is an ancient symbol of wholeness. Virtually every culture worldwide has at some point used a mandala to illustrate some aspect of completeness or unity. The Vajrayana tradition, in particular, has many thousands of different practices that involve mandala visualization.

In this guided meditation, we use a stripped-down, essentialized and Westernized mandala practice created by Michael Taft for his students. Michael guides you through the basics of this system, which you can use for many purposes: psychological self-understanding and healing, enhancing meditation concentration and focus, and spiritual growth and development.

Although at first this technique may seem very different than the usual way we practice nondual meditation (such as “dropping the ball”), they actually support each other very well. And in the long run, they begin to merge.
