    How to Draw Your Mandala: I used to teach kids about symbols as forms of language, and the mandala one one of the most important forms we addressed. For awhile, my room would be filled with the mandalas we created. We attached strings to them and hung them from the ceiling. Making a mandala is, for me, a form of meditation. This is an EXCELLENT lesson on how to start.
