By definition, a mandala is a geometric shape or pattern that symbolizes the universe, a meditation tool for creating sacred space, relaxation and focusing the mind, or a symbol used as a gateway to a spiritual journey. Mandalas are usually a circle that contain starburst, floral, wheel or spiral patterns within it. A mandala garden is simply a garden space with plants that take on this design principle.

Also, in traditional mandalas, the four directions, north, east, south and west, or the four elements earth, air, fire and water were often represented in the mandala pattern.
