    Beginners tutorial: How to draw a mandala

Today I’m bringing you a tutorial for something that I get questions about all of the time… I will show you how I constructed the simple draw a Mandala. Although ,it looks complicated it's .Actually quite easy, once you know the steps.

I have  been drawing mandalas as a way to relax body and mind , worry and depression and I often get asked where I learned and how I got started.

Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of information out there on how to draw a mandala. There’s plenty of pretty pictures for reference though, and that is how I learned… 

The mandala is a sanskrit for "circle" or "completion" has a long history and is recognized
for its deep spiritual meaning and representation of all the things and wholeness.It can be understood in two different ways:externally as a visual representation of the universe or internally as a guide for several practices.It's means represent structure of life itself . shows the relation to the infinite and beyond within the body and mind.A mandala is a ritual symbol in Asian cultures.
Many people and culutures are giving different types of meaning and names for mandala art. 

But know , the mandala is a diagram ,chart or geometric pattern for "New Age".

              "A brief history of mandala should details on next post articles"

Don't think about how it's going to look when you finish, or how people will react when they see it. Don't make it about yourself, and don't treat it as a test of your drawing skill or self-worth. Let the rhythm take you around each circle, and let the mandala become your whole world for now. There's no good or bad just the rhythm, lines, and contrast.

So sit down, and take a breath. Smile and draw .. What you think in your mind and do something creativity .

Materials are needed for draw a Mandala


You don't need many of materials .All you need is
  1. Paper
  2. Compass
  3. Protractor, 
  4. Pencil, 
  5. Ruler,
  6. Eraser and
  7. Drawing Pen (As your wises)

Let's  get started


   Take the center of the paper you have.  I have an A4 and this is the center of the page.

Step 2:
Using the compass, draw a circle in the center of the page.create a separation between the inner and outer sections and added in a new circles.

Step 3:

      Using the ruler and the pencil itself.  then raised a tracing grid at first.  Then trace a vertical line and the horizontal line.


 Part from these two lines and use the protractor.  Align the mid-point of the protector over the dot where the compass was set when you drew the circle.

Step5:  Using the pencil, mark a small line at every 10 degree around the protractor.  If using a 180 degree protractor, you'll need to repeat for both halves of the circle.

  Then with the ruler, draw lines around the circle.


  That's it you can start work from  the inside to the outside.


 Keep adding layers of different patterns and  Sketch the patterns and shapes around each ring of the circle, Shading in certain areas can make a nice contrast. using your segments of the grid as a guideline.


   Ink over the pencil lines, wait for the ink to dry, and then  Erase those pencil lines.

Step 10:

 finally, you have a mandala!
