SYNTROPIC MANDALAS

A
mandala
is a microcosm:
a circle representing a cosmos breathing with spiritual energy.
There is a focal point at the precise center of the circle.
*
The
center of a
mandala
is an
omphalos
signifying
a place of birth
a navel of being
&
becoming
.
Like rays from the sun
mandalas
exhibit a radial symmetry emanating from this “original source”.
From the center and within
their circumference mandalas contain and project
sacred space.
*
A mandala is nothing less than a form of spiritual technology.
*
A yantra is a two- or three-dimensional geometric mandala.
*
The function of mandalas & yantras is to aid the seeker is his or her quest for the
sacred
and
enlightenment.
*
Tantra is nothing less than the practice or way of the mystic
or
Zen
Master
*
The mandala
as spiritual technology is often accompanied by other “spiritual exercises” such as
meditation
or
zazen
*
The
purpose
of
P S Y C H A D A L A
is to introduce a new spiritual technology
the
syntropic mandala
*
Whereas in classical mandalas the focal point is the center point
in
a
syntropic mandala
the focal “line” of contemplation is the
axis mundi
the central pillar
or
line of being & becoming
that rises from the bottom to the top of the mandala:
This
syntropia
is an expression of the field of consciousness
as it rises from a “dead” state to an awakened state as in
kundalini
yoga
*
A new meditation vehicle.
*
A

Psychadala

a syntropic mandala
works best when used in conjunction with a
mantra
a “true word”
or
spiritual language
*
In
a literal sense the true word is the sound of the
breath
It is the most natural expression of life:
The
mantra
of
mantras
*
your deepest breath is your mantra your
inspiration
*
focus
on
inhalation
imagine
exhalation
*
A
word
the spoken word
the words of
language
are a form that the breath takes
a word is shaped
an abstraction of
breath
*
Words
language
give us
voice
*

The
word
psyche
means
breath
the
life force
speaks
is
a
voice
the animating spirit
the
breath of mind
*
The
source
