You can discover the ancient art of mandalas through these free mandala coloring pages. But what is a mandala, you ask?
Mandalas are configurations of geometric shapes and symbols. Often, they are arranged in circles, but rectangles and other shapes can also be used.
Mandalas originated as religious icons. Their purpose was to help a person focus and meditate, to designate a holy place, or to map out the relationship of deities, places, or powers to one another.
Today, many people color mandalas as a form of relaxation. The focused and repetitive nature of the patterns can help you forget your troubles and capture a few moments of peace.
Let the stress melt away as you color this collection of mandalas below.
