Mandalas may be drawn using either geometric or natural forms and explain the connection between the inner world of the person and the external reality.

Creating a mandala is a unique way that people express themselves. They can create mandalas either on paper or stones or cloth or even threads. These symbols are widely used in art therapy, since they can help make the inner world calm and steady. Having become popular in modern life, mandalas can be found in coloring books that are offered at online stores.
