Revolutions Mandala

While studying in a monastery in Japan I became fascinated with an esoteric form of tantric Buddhism called Shingon.

Shingon is primarily taught through Mantra and Mandala of the two realms. The two Mandalas in the Shingon school are the Womb realm and Diamond realm. These two mandalas are believed to be a compacted expression of the entirety of Mahayana Buddhism and the root of Vajrayana teachings. Though this form of Buddhism is highly secretive and these Mandalas are incredibly hard to interpret as a lay person, under the guidance of my teachers and an extensively large library at Ryukoku University I've thus combined the two mandalas and created a map to the cosmos.
