Mandala (Sanskrit: 'circle') is a spiritual and ritual symbol, representing the Universe.

The term is of Hindu origin, but is also used in other religions, particularly Buddhism.

In various spiritual traditions, mandalas are used as a spiritual teaching tool, and as an aid to meditation.

In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically.
