MANDALA is a Sanskrit word that means "Whole world" or "Healing circle"

 

 

You have
noticed that everything
an Indian does is in a circle, and that
is because the Power of the World always
works in circles, and everything tries to be round. In
the old days when we were a strong and happy people, all
our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation, and
as long as the hoop was unbroken, the people flourished. The
flowering tree was the living center of the hoop and the circle of the
four quarters nourished it.  The east gave peace and light, the south
gave warmth, the west gave rain, and the north with its cold and mighty
wind gave strength and endurance. This knowledge came to us from the
outer world with our religion. Everything the Power of the World does is
in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a
ball and so are all the stars.   The wind, in its great power, whirls. Birds
make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun
comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same,
and both are round.   Even the seasons form a great circle in their
changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life
of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in
everything where power moves. Our teepees were round like
the nests of birds, and these were always set in a circle, the
nation's hoop, a nest of many nests, where the Great
Spirit meant for us to hatch our children
