MANDALA is a Sanskrit word that means "circle".
In the Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions
their sacred art often takes a mandala form.
The basic form of most Hindu and Buddhist
mandalas is a square with four gates containing
a circle with a center point.

Mandala has become a generic term that
represents the cosmos metaphysically or
symbolically.

MEDICINE WHEEL represents harmony
and connections and is considered a major
symbol of peaceful interaction among all living
beings on Earth.

There is a lot of mystery surrounding the
Medicine Wheel as no written record to their
purpose has been found. One theory is
the wheels contain significant stellar and cosmological
alignments
.
