The Mandala

In SGI, we practice to the Gohonzon. The Gohonzon is great because it has many different kinds of people and gods and Buddhas on it. It holds a lot of different stuff! 

Those people, gods, and Buddhas all represent feelings and emotions that each of us have inside. That's why it works in so many different ways for so many different people. 

The Gohonzon is a mandala. Mandala means "cluster of blessings." 

Many Buddhist sects have mandalas. Many mandalas are beautiful designs.

Beautiful designs are fun to color.
