Mandala of Gratitude: Talk and Led Reflection

by Suryadarshini

Mandala means both 'circle' and 'centre'. Mandalas are sacred spaces, and we can find them everywhere. In the Sigalovada Sutta, the Buddha creates a mandala by associating groups of people with each of the six directions: north, south, east, west, the zenith and the nadir. When we bow to each of these directions, each of these groups of people, we create a mandala of gratitude.
