Mandala Meditation Room


The mandala is a harmonic blend of opposites, a wholistic interaction of complementary energies. Like man and woman, each half has what the other needs to grow. We call our shop Mandala Books because we strive to present not only the finest treasures of Eastern wisdom but also their counterpart, the Western mystery tradition. The cool logic of advanced metaphysics developed in the East needs to adopt the unconditional love fostered by the Western mystics. Just as the maudlin West needs the Eastern body of knowledge to realize their own higher Being. These profound manuscripts are gifts of Intellect; the best being truly mandalic, the author's soul in material form.

Proper study will make us wise as serpents, thus fulfilling our Divine destinies as Bene Elohim, future Sons and Daughters of God. Then, by treading the same narrow path of the World Conqueror, compassion will keep us, the Elect, innocent as doves.

After a brief 5-year sabbatical at Mt. Baldy Zen Centre, Leonard Cohen (Jikan or Silent One) retired his robes and came down from the mountain. A recent revival of his luminous love song to God, Hallelujah, has created a buzz around the world. Here you can relax and refresh your body and soul as Roshi Cohen thrills the throngs in London, 2008.

But you don't really care for music, do you?

There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.   

~Leonard Cohen CC GOQ (1934 – 2016)


Hildegard's mandala "represents the divine love of the son of God. The fires of love and judgment burn in his chest, marking the exterior limits of the universe, in which man takes his place as the crowning glory of Creation."          ~Liber Divinorum Operum (Book of Divine Works)




"The mandala (mun'dl-uh) [Skt., circular, round] is seen as a microcosm embodying the various divine powers at work in the universe, and it serves as a collection point for the gods and universal forces. Numbers of deities have specific positions in the diagram, and the symbolism and structure of the mandala are highly elaborated. The mandala symbolizes the totality of existence, inner or outer. Mandalas are used in meditation, particularly in Tibetan Buddhism and Japanese tantric Buddhism. Similar ritual drawings have been found in the sand paintings of Native North Americans and in other traditions."

~The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition
