What Does Syndala Mean?

"Syndala" is a word I made up. It is a combination of the words, synchronicity and/or synergy and mandala.

"Synchronicity" is defined as a coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.

"Synergy" is defined as the interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

"Mandala" is a Sanskrit word that means circle. "Manda" means essence and "la" means container and therefore, mandala can be taken to mean "container of essence," which has been loosely translated as "sacred circle." A mandala represents wholeness, unity and renewal and can be a metaphor for your own life.

I believe that the combination of these words is not only pleasant sounding, but also reflective of our collective and individual process and journey.
