DESIGN MEANING: Unity

ONE GOD, MANY PATHS

UNITY

Know that there is only one God, one consciousness though spoken in different words,

and wisdom given by different people in many different ways.

                                                    –Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

This mandala is symbolic of the idea, One God, Many Paths.

There is so much hatred in the world today because of religious dogma and yet love is at

the root of all religions.

In the center of the mandala is the vesica piscis, a geometric shape created by the circumference

of two same size circles laying on the center point of the other. The mathematical ratio

of the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3. The shape has played a part

in many forms of mysticism through out history. Inside of it is the all seeing eye of God.

Surrounding and protecting it is a dodecahedron, one of the platonic solids and

as remarked by Plato in Timaeus 55 …”the god used for arranging the constellations

on the whole heaven”.

The top hand is Buddha’s in it he holds a lotus bud. The hand is held in the position of

the Vitarka Mudra, symbolizing Intellectual argument, discussion.

To the right is the Hand of Fatima. Fatima was the prophet Mohammed’s daughter.

In the center of the eight petal holy flower of Islam is Allah’s name.

The bottom hand is the hand of Jesus Christ. On the wrist is the Rosicrucian rose.

The center of the rose bleeds the stigmata.

To the left is the Jewish Hand of Hamsa or Hand of Miriam. Like the hand of Fatima it is seen

as the hand of God and a protective amulet. In the palm is the Star of David and the implied

center of the Flower of Life.

The web symbolizes that we are all caught in this Earthly plane together.

Blue is considered a spiritual color in religions world wide.
