MANDALA MANTRA/YANTRA with OM Symbol

In these Mandala, the inscriptions inside are a mantra in Tibetan, or a repeated prayer, in order to support the symbol in the center, which gives meaning to the Mandala. The written prayer is pronounced: "Om-mani-padme-hum" and the meaning attributed to it is universal love and compassion, which represent the foundations of Buddhism.
This mantra is probably the most famous and used in Tibetan Buddhism, and if pronounced repeatedly it has a beneficial effect in the psyche and mind.

The YANTRA is a base that symbolizes the existing material reality, and supports the internal symbol, from which the Mandala takes the main meaning.

The OM symbol gives meaning to the Mandala. It recalls harmony and harmonizes the place where it is placed.
The symbol of the AUM, or even written OM, in fact represents the primordial union with creation.
It then exhorts an intimate connection at pace with the whole thing, thus producing harmony.

MANDALA KALACHAKRA

This Mandala is the graphic (most detailed) and drawn representation of Mandala created with colored powders, by Tibetan Buddhist monks, during the Kalachakra initiation rite. Achieving the rite provides access to higher knowledge.
These Mandalas consist of a square base, a system with four zones/islands, and externally eight smaller islands (the wheels of the Dharma), which support the center, the seat of knowledge.
The four islands represent the four elements, through which it is possible to reach the center, where is knowledge.
The Earth element is black (it goes down), the Air is orange, the Fire is red and the Water is the blue.
The symbolic meaning of this design is the representation of the systems that make up the universe. The resulting geometry gives the depth to the Mandala, representing precisely the multiplicity of systems, one inside the other. Therefore represents the highest and deepest knowledge of the Universe system, and self-knwoledge.
It is considered the "representation of the Universe".
There is a legend about this sacred geometry : Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, saw this design projected on the ceiling in a meditative phase. In that moment he had the intuition and the realization that all things are part of systems within each other, individually but at the same time, part of a larger system; he saw in a fractalic way, that everything has its function in the small, to allow something greater to exist, and so on. So this is the realization of the interdependence of things. This design is able to activate the intuition of universal dynamics, finding them in every context. The importance of this design is really high for the tradition, in fact Tibetan monasteries are conceived and built with this geometry, so seeing the Kalachackra mandala is like observing a monastery from above.
The Mandala Kalachakra is also called the house of the Buddha or the house of knowledge.
