COMPUTER PROGRAMS

YANTRAM
"
A computer driven suite of graphic tools for the creation of symmetrical visualizations, star patterns, mazes, magic circles, and kaleidoscopic imagery"

Chuck Henderson at Fishrock Studios sent me a copy of YANTRAM for review. Wow! It was just too fun... Pictured is a mandala I made within just minutes of loading the program.

It's very easy to use and offers lots of creative options, including the use of your own images (note the Mandala Project logo in the image at right). It's a nicely packaged, well-documented program - very professional and very fun.

Mandala Software
Greg Ordy's "Mandala" is a no-cost graphics program for PC's that displays animated Mandala images. A large number of options can be controlled by the user. Changing these options produces an extremely wide range of Mandala sequences.

Gliftic
Gliftic, from Ransen Software, is another mandala-making program. I wasn't able to test it out myself since it is only available for PC's but it looks like a fun program. It was recommended to me originally by a woman who's son is autistic. She said he was very soothed by playing with the program and enjoyed it very much.
