Description of the Painting:
Mandala is a tantric meditation device. It represents transcendent experience of enlightened awareness. It is the symbol of the union of wisdom & compassion. Actually symbolizes the body and mind of Buddha.
Kalachakra is a sanskrit word for "wheel of Time". Kalachakra Mandala has 3 major squares and corresponding entrance gates. The six concentric circles that surround Kalachakra's square palace represent the six constituencies. From the innermost to the outermost circle are the elements of earth, water, fire , wind, space and wisdom. The mandala of Kalachakra symbolizes the entire universe (outer Kalachakra) in terms of planets & time cycles,as well as aspects of our body & mind(inner Kalachakra) and even the practice (other Kalachakra ).
One strives of visualizing the complete mandala including all its deities and ornaments in perfect detail within the size of tiny drop to practice single pointed concentration.
