It promotes harmony within all these layers so a concentrated state of radiant health is achieved. The highest crowning meditative asanas, pranayama (breathing techniques), and yoga nidra (psychic sleep), which are embedded in the deep roots of Dharma Mittra's teachings, are imparted to the student.

Mandala Art Workshop
The meaning of the word mandala (Sanskrit) is "circle" or "whole world". The circle's shape represents rounding, completeness, fulleness, and circulating. The mandala with its precise geometry, elements, shapes and colours depicts a certain energy matrix. When we meditate on mandala our consciousness dives into the collective consciousness where the symbols are activated by certain impulses of the universe and of our mind.
Mandala is found in many of the old peoples and is used in various spiritual practices, meditations, psychology and the harmonization of the energies of various spaces. Mandala can be different, have various shapes (circles, tricycles, squares, etc.) and enter various elements such as cosmic principles, side of the world, deity, Avatars, planets, chakras, elements of nature or any other inspiration. Diverse dynamics of Mandala, its forms and forms stimulate various internal potentials.
Mandala is also made as a substitute for yantra, with a less default geometric form. Mandala Art can be a decoration and correction of a particular part of space, in specific colors and forms of the given theme. Each color and element has its place in space. For example, the south is conveniently placed a picture in a red color that can be combined with black or earthen paint and so for each part of the home. There will help Vastu tips.
Yantra and Mandala are one of the most powerful symbols that bind us to collective states of consciousness and harmony. In the home their positive energies are spread into space, and meditating on them spreads positive awareness. When we meditate on mandala our consciousness dives into the collective consciousness, where the symbols trigger certain impulses of the universe.
