Mandala Images, implement of enlightenment
available on Art Canvas Prints by Wiesław Sadurski.
I red books on the subject, saw Tibetan original paintings and fine Western works.
I painted Mandala on canvas - heart chacra - called Dandelion, 1993, a million brushstrokes!
on a page Spectral Rainbow Paintings.
1995, when I got to know how to switch on my computer - went into learning, simply by doing - painting Mandalas.
Not really painting - just drawing a single black circle - and through multiplication, distortions and all the colorful electronic tricks and filters in several programms - creating images. Very intensive learning process.
Painting Spectrals on canvas, clear color gradients, is quite a difficult job. Such an effect with computer - oh! a few clicks away.
I surely felt fascinated.
Mandala is derived from the root 'manda', which means 'essence', and suffix 'la', which means 'container'.
Accordingly, mandala is a container of essence.
It is a spiritual vehicle of enlightenment, coming from the distant past into our life to make it better.
In meditation mandala is used as a visual means of concentration.
A simple principle:
you FEEL YOUR CENTRE WITHIN, you SEE THE CENTRE WITHOUT,
The color psychology under the influence of mandala:
White - the madness of ignorance transforms into the wisdom of reality.
Red - the madness of attachment transforms into the wisdom of discernment.
Yellow - the madness of pride transforms into the wisdom of equality.
Green - the madness of jealousy transforms into the wisdom of accomplishment.
Blue - the madness of anger transforms into the mirror-like wisdom.
