Mandala of the Five Buddhas
'If our imagination came vividly to life, so that our whole sense of the world burst into flower, then the five Buddhas would not be symbols at all, but majestic presences filling our lives with light and wisdom.' VESSANTARA
The mandala of the Five Buddhas is an important Buddhist symbol - a multi-faceted jewel communicating the different aspects of Enlightenment. Meeting each Buddha in turn, we start to awaken to the qualities they embody - energy, beauty, love, confidence, and freedom.
By contemplating the mandala as a whole we can transform ourselves through the power of imagination, and experience the majesty of the mind set free.
