Mandala by Madelaine Santa

Mandala 4

An earth mandala inspired by Tibetan buddhism. The inscription on the paths are the Four Reliances (starting from top clockwise):

  1. Do not rely on the individual, but on the Dharma.
  2. Do not rely on the words, but on the meaning.
  3. Do not rely on the provisional meaning, but on the definitive meaning.
  4. Do not rely on the ordinary mind, but rely on wisdom.

For those who want to see the original outline of my mandala, I have posted the skeleton below.

I have also added alternate version of my mandala for fun.
