visualisation and concretisation of the Mandala concept is one of the
most significant contributions to harmonious psychology. Mandalas
are seen as sacred places which, by their very presence in the world,
remind the viewer of the immanence of sanctity in the universe and its
potential to themselves. In the context of the "peaceful path"
one purpose of the Mandala is to put an end to human suffering, to
attain enlightenment or understanding and to attain a correct view of
reality. It is a means to discover divinity by the realisation
that it resides within one's own self".
