Mandala means something that has a centre and a periphery. Recognising the dynamics of all our mandala connections, the connections between mind, body, environment, self and others, is part of the awareness and clarity aspect of Being. We have an inescapable bond with all our experiences and relationships. By being aware of our connections and respecting them, we connect to the mandala of our being.
Mandalas are the living spontaneously appearing dynamic patterns that pervade the whole universe and are the universe itself. Every aspect of our individuality is made from mandalas, as is the apparently existing external universe. We need to communicate with the mandalas around us through the power of our own heart mandala. This talk was recorded at St Margaret’ s, Hall, Oxford in June 2012.
