Mandala as a universal language – Istanbul

A Mandala (Sanskrit Maṇḍala, ‘circle’) is a spiritual and universal symbol representing the universe and is an integral part of both ancient and modern cultures.

Colorful and luminous patterns and rhythms spin a telling tale, right before my wandering eyes. Threads of light spill from mosque to mosque, twirling and whirling a reality, so vivid and real, my eyes painting and designing a shrine all in five minutes time. Starry eyed, I invoke, initiate and invite a magical temple for the inspired and creative 21st Century soul.
