Buddhist Mandala Box Notecard Set


Send auspicious greetings to your friends and family with these Buddhist Mandala Notecards. A mandala is a cosmic diagram used as an aid in meditation. These notecards feature four stunning mandalas from Tibet, Nepal, and Mongolia from the collection of the Asian Art Museum.

In the center of the oldest mandala is Vajrabhairava, also known as Yamantaka, the conqueror of Yama, God of Death. Another mandala from Tibet features a female bodhisattva, Sitatapatra Aparajita, a protective deity known as the invincible goddess of the white parasol. In the Mongolian mandala, a mystic thunderbolt diagram is set against a landscape of green mountains and auspicious clouds. At the center of the mandala from Nepal is Vajravarahi and her retinue within a pair of overlapping triangles. The female (down-pointing) and the male (up-pointing) principles represent wisdom and compassion, whose union leads to enlightenment.

Each box contains 20 notecards and 20 envelopes. 5 each of the 4 designs.
