The fact is that more and more people like to lose themselves in the endless pictures for a while and take a break from everyday life. The admiration of Mandalas calms down and arranges the thoughts correctly. In countries with Hindu and Buddhist beliefs, mandalas are painstakingly composed with colored sand and are considered religious and sacral.
