Mandala means "circle" in Sanskrit. They can symbolize the universe, the natural perfection in nature, and universal harmony. Tibetan Buddhist monks create their traditional Mandalas with colored sand. I create my Mandalas with light. A technique involving lights, camera, photoshop for post production, and my trusty rusty tripod. All the images on this website are the copyright of Terry Long, who produced them. Prints may be purchased, and workshops are available. Call Terry at 909.648.6646
