A Mandala is a geometric figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism. In Sanskrit it means circle and represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The mandala appears to us in all aspects of life, the Earth, the Sun and the Moon. It is used as a spiritual tool allowing the individual meditating to become one with the universe.
The ancient yogis believed we only have so many breaths for our life. If this is so, why not stretch our life out a bit longer by taking slow and deep breaths? Breathing is the only autonomous system of the body that we can also control. This means that the body governs it but we can change how we breathe through conscious breathing practices such as Pranayama. Our breath is an indicator of our mood. This means that if we change how we breathe we can change our mood. Single nostril breathing can help regulate left and right sides thereby creating balance in our nervous system.
