This MANDALA makes me think of a LOTUS rooted in the heart center.

That below has been copied from another source and I wanted to include it.

Lotuses of many colors grow in Asia, Egypt, the Americas, and Australia, and in all these places it has been used as a symbol. Theosophy interprets this symbolism as alluding to the unfoldment of the inner divine potential, and two parallels between spiritual and physical planes and between cosmic creation and spiritual rebirth. Because its seed already has within it perfectly formed embryo leaves and whole plantlets -- even to the flowers -- this water lily symbolizes the recalling of the universe from the Eternal at the beginning of a great solar cycle. It also hints at the concealment of the ideal world within the mundane, and the ability to access the former through the latter. The lotus is called "the child of the Universe bearing the likeness of its mother in its bosom," H. P. Blavatsky emphasizing that "spiritual prototypes of all things exist in the immaterial world before those things become materialised on Earth . . ." (Theosophical Glossary, p. 191; The Secret Doctrine 1:58). Moreover, because it has buds, blossoms, and seed pods simultaneously on the same plant, it has symbolized the past, present, and future.
