Mandala and Zentangle Drawings

Mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल Maṇḍala, ‘circle’) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point while the Zentangle Method is an easy to learn, fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

Lately, I have been hooked with this – a very good outlet to free oneself from worries, and get occupied with something better at least for a moment. (More of my drawings can be found here.)

My kids helped me color this beautiful drawing. It took me an hour to finish the whole thing teehee!

This one was my 2nd attempt for a Mandala drawing. Instead of coloring, I used colored pens to give it a brighter look.

This drawing was copied online with little changes, adding words to it that best describes each one.

My very first Mandala drawing, inspired by Teacher Julie, a fellow blogger who is also gifted with creative hands. Since grade school I knew that I was gifted with a pair of hands that could draw and get more creative when in the mood but never really took it seriously.

These days, when I get a chance and free time, rather than confine myself in the bedroom browsing online, I draw. Guess what makes it better? My kids copy me. Instead of spending most of their time playing with their gadgets and watching TV, they do the same.
