I find it difficult to put into words, what mandala is about for me. It's not a concept or a symbol of some kind. It's not about a center. Centers are uncountable. Mandala arises out of how our experience organizes itself. There can be no enlightenment without delusion. The mandala includes our confusion, bewilderment, fear and chaos. The order and the chaos include each other. And then there is a ground that is larger than this duality as well. And the mandala is communicating the richness of this experience. Perhaps the mandala doesn't have to conform to our visual preconceptions.
