My Granny Mandala

I finished crocheting my granny mandala tonight. It is about 24" across and I will mount it on a white board and hang it upstairs in the hallway.


  1. That is really pretty! What is a mandala?

  2. The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "circle," a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself--a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

    Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.
