The Perfect Circle: A mandala is composed of two integral parts: a palace and an assembly of deities that inhabit a ritual ground. In mandalas featuring peaceful deities, this assembly is placed on a lotus. The petals of this lotus mandala can be closed to form a bud that signifies the potential for divine assembly within all of us.
