This week’s MotD theme: Mandala Artists
Danmala (“giver of garlands”) artist, Kathy Klein, beautifully put together this vibrant, yet delicate, garland mandala of mixed flowers and petals. About this piece she states that she sang “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me” while putting it together. It certainly feels very calming to me.
Her use of colors, shapes and symmetry come together in this contemplative piece and she creates yet another stunning Danmala in a full line of masterful pieces of natural art.
About her art as stated on her website:
She creates the danmalas by first centering herself in a meditative devotional space. Next she gathers flowers and natural objects while her mind is kept in stillness. Her inspiration is given from the golden sound residing within perfect silence. These offerings are reflections of the inexpressible, a gesture which points towards life’s abundance, an unspoken verse of Love.
Inspiration for Today
Kathy’s flower mandala reminds us that we too can approach anything we do much in the same way she approaches her Danmalas. Before starting on a project (home, work, hobby, garden, etc), center ourselves in a meditative devotional space (either physically or in our mind), gather together what we need for the project, then from this place of stillness, proceed.
