Everyone's Mandala Coloring Books
is a Sanskrit word meaning center and circle. It conveys the
notion that any center is tied to its circumference and any circumference
is always determined by its center. Together they represent wholeness.
mandalas abound in nature. Every cell in our body, for instance,
is a living mandala. So is the iris of our eye, a snow crystal, a bird's nest,
a bicycle wheel, and Planet Earth herself.
Mandalas have been
known to all cultures throughout history. Individual designs vary
greatly but they always have the following characteristics: a center, cardinal
that can be contained in a circle, and usually some form of symmetry. They can
very simple or extremely complex as in ancient Tibetan religious designs, Navajo
sand paintings, and huge stained glass windows in medieval cathedrals.
mandalas have been used by spiritual leaders, shamans, and healers
as a source of wisdom, a form of meditation, and to reflect the dynamic unity of
the universe. Coloring these timeless images can 'help us
focused when we feel scattered and more peaceful when we
with personal issues.' They can awaken the playful child in
each of us,
and aid us in bringing to the surface 'messages from the
like bubbles that have been trapped at the bottom of
the lake and
are finally released.'
Coloring Books I, II & III feature 22 original 8" x 8"mandalas,
beautifully drawn by Monique Mandali.
Used at home, in classrooms, hospitals,
and healing centers,
they are soothing to body, mind and spirit.
They're inspiring, heart-warming and fun for anyone ages 4-104!
Coloring Book I
Monique Mandali's first
mandala coloring book features 22 designs that were spontaneously
drawn during 10 days in
the middle of a Montana winter. Published
in its first incarnation in 1978 and currently
in its 11th printing makes it the grandmother
of all mandala coloring books still in print.
Coloring Book II
In this second volume,
Monique Mandali offers twenty-two new mandala designs.
Responding to the popularity of her first
book she suggests more
to use mandalas with children and adults
at home, in the classroom and
when traveling or feeling introspective.
Coloring Book III
With this third volume,
invites us to color twenty-two new mandalas and engage in this fun,
creative, and relaxing activity. The last mandala in this
book is a reproduction of the Chartres labyrinth,
with a Lotus
blossom in its center.
Coloring this mandala from the outside
to its center
is a pilgrimage all by itself!
