    Strictly speaking, a mandala is a density of particles, or points, around a central point, which serves as a focus for all the rest. The patterns into which these points can be arranged is infinite, and as such each and every potential arrangement of points in a mandala has a real universal complement. Yet it is not the specific arrangement of points in any individual mandala that is important, but rather its inherent pattern. It need not be perfectly round or symmetric or even pleasing to fulfill its purpose, it must only be. Its very existence serves to represent the Universe as Microcosm, in all its wondrous splendor, to translate the infinite majesty of the Cosmos for communion with the human mind. (This explanation was taken off the internet from some randon site.)
