Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. The circular designs in Thangka Painting symbolises the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected. The mandala also represents spiritual journey within the individual viewer.
The definition of mandala literally means "circle". It's when we define mandala in energetic terms we find that mandala meaning deals with a visual aid that pulls in the human consciousness. That's why mandalas are so effective in meditation. The circular, often concentric design of mandalas tends to visually magnetise consciousness and awareness, allowing focus to draw inward - which is a wanted result in meditation.
The above Mandala is called Mantra mandala which consist of 4 tibetan words
"Om Mane Padme Hum"
OM = The Vibration Or Sound Of The Universe
MA = Represents Ethics And Purifies Jealousy
NI = Represents Patience and Purifies Want or Desire
PAD = Represents Diligence and Purifies Ignorance and Judgement
ME = Represents Concentration and Purifies Attachment
HUM = The Unity of All
