Mandalas are cosmic maps that look upward and inward. In the three Sukta pieces, Schiaparelli’s maps of Mars in a clouded sky surround the central circles containing excerpts from the Rg Veda.
Nasadiya Sukta RV 10.129 There was neither non-existence nor existence then; there was neither the realm of space or nor sky which is beyond. What stirred? Where? In whose protection? Was there water, bottomlessly deep? There was neither death nor immortality then. There was no distinguishing sign of night nor of day.
Devi Sukta10.125. I am the queen of all, the collector of treasures, ablaze with consciousness, first to merit worship, diffused in every direction, abiding in many places and revealed in manifold forms. I move through storms, light, heaven, through all gods.
Ratri Sukta RV 10.127 The goddess Night was drawn near, looking about many sides with her eyes. She has put on all her glories. The immortal goddess has filled the wide space, the depths and the heights. She stems the tide of darkness with her light.
The two Mandalas below use the Nasadiya Sukta texts as well.
