– there was one mandala with Buddhas that reminded me of gingerbread men
– I couldn’t always find everything that was hidden in the mandala
– too many dolphins
As a general rule, I’m not a very meditative person. The closest I get is my yoga practice, and even then my mind is everywhere, unless I’m physically doing something. That being said, the mandalas and other illustrations in this book are gorgeous. I really enjoyed the varying color schemes.
Every two pages in this book are combined through a lovely illustration (mostly mandalas) and a short text.
I went through all of them in one sitting, slowly reading the short texts, which had a calming effect. Frustratingly enough though, I was unable to find all the hidden symbols in the mandalas, which are discussed at the very end of the book (it still bothers me a little).
