DIY Mandala Art


The ‘flower of life’ is the perfect seed for geometric construction. If carried outward, it contains the framework for ‘Metatron’s cube’, also called a Mandala! It is a part of sacred geometry, which in many stories is considered the symbol used to ward off evil spirits. Amazingly, drawing a Mandala is not as hard as it may seem at first sight!

Here is how you can draw a Mandala, step by step:

You will need:
Camlin Compass
Camlin Mechanical pencil 0.7mm 
Camel wax crayons/Premium colour pencils 

Step 1:
Using the compass and pencil, draw two circles as shown in the image below.

Step 2:
Now using the compass, keep the metal point at the intersection between the two circles. Keeping the points as your center, draw two more circles. Your drawing should look exactly like the one shown below.

Step 3:
For the next step, find the two new intersection points (shown with the green arrows) and repeat the earlier steps.Your drawing will then look the one shown below.

Step 4:
For this step, repeat the same process as mentioned above by locating the two new intersection points using the green arrows. At this point, you should have six circles.

Step 5:
The two new circles drawn in the previous step should intersect at one point in the original circle. Place the metal point of your compass at that point and draw the sixth circle. Now, including the original circle, you will have seven circles. These are called ‘the seed of life’ or the Mandala. When you shift gaze at the center of this Mandala and move your gaze outwards, you will see that your flower of life is complete.

Once you are done with the drawing, you can colour the Mandala using wax crayons or colour pencils! Did you like this article? Do let us know in the comments section!
