Hand Crochet Glass Bead Mandala
The Mandala is a representation of the universe. Placed on the shrine as an offering of the universe to the Buddhas the three rings are built up with rice, scattered with precious stones.
Each layer is filled with offerings until the multi layered mandala is filled with coins, beads, jewels or rice. The 'universe' is then offered over the head to show you would give the entirety of existence to help others attain enlightenment. Used by practicing Tibetan Buddhists as part of the daily preliminaries to meditation, the mandala represents the naturally balanced nature of the outer world and the inner mind.
