We find sacred geometry in many cultures and traditions around the world. Its meanings and symbolism can vary widely. Some common geometric shapes and patterns that are associated with sacred geometry include the circle, the triangle, the square, and the hexagon. These shapes are often believed to represent various spiritual or cosmic principles, such as unity, balance, and the interconnectedness of all things.

Sacred geometry appears in a variety of cultures across the globe:

  1. Hinduism: In Hinduism, sacred geometry is often represented by the mandala, a geometric diagram or pattern that represents the cosmos or the universe. Mandalas are used in Hindu rituals and meditation practices and are believed to represent the unity and interconnectedness of all things.
  2. Buddhism: In Buddhism, the mandala often represents sacred geometry. The swastika is a symbol of auspiciousness and good fortune. Buddhist practices use mandalas to focus the mind and as a representation of the Buddha’s teachings.
  3. Native American cultures: In some Native American cultures, sacred geometry is represented by the medicine wheel, a circular pattern that represents the four cardinal directions and the cycles of life. Spiritual practices and rituals use the medicine wheel as it represents the interconnectedness of all things.
  4. Christianity: In Christianity, sacred geometry is represented by the halo, a circle or ring of light that is often depicted surrounding the heads of saints or other holy figures. We believe the halo to represent the divine presence or the spiritual qualities of the person depicted.

Sacred geometry has a rich and varied history and continues to be an important aspect of many spiritual and cultural traditions.

In some traditions, they use sacred geometry as a tool for meditation, visualization, or spiritual growth. Architects and planners often use sacred geometry in their projects, such as temples, churches and altars.

Sacred geometry has the power to connect individuals with the divine or to bring about positive changes in their lives.
