mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, "circular; orb; diagram; region, sphere."). A circle, ball, wheel, ring, or circumference, as the orbit of a heavenly body, and hence a great circle in astronomy, an orb. Also one of the ten mandalas (circles, divisions) of the Rig-Veda Samhita.
A mandala is a diagram that provides information regarding how to design and balance a building or space. This diagram is based on Vastu principles and its five elements: earth, air, water, fire and ether. There is not one unique mandala but there are many different ones since they are done according to each particular building and the people inhabiting it. Many calculations, some of them very complex, have to be done in order to have the right mandala for a specific environment. These calculations are based on many different parameters which may include numerical values of people's names, birth chart estimations and astrological calculations among others.
