        Mandala is a Sanskrit term. In ancient India, it means a country’s territory or the place for ritual ceremony. Later in Buddhism, it is a word that represents the essence of Buddhism.
        Carrying the meaning of attaining the innate essence. It refers to a center where the following constituent parts focus and come together: enlightened beings and worthy sages, merit fields, and the perfection of body, speech and mind.
