Burning Mandala [live action]

First Appearance: Act 48

See Also: [manga] & [anime]

In Brief: A super powerful attack from the anime and manga that's given a very cool, realistic visual in the live action series. Of note is the fact that it was the only attack that actually managed to harm Mamoru while he was possessed by Queen Metallia.

Burning Mandala was only used on Act 48.

Cultural: "Mandala' (Sanskrit mandala "circle", "completion") is a term used to refer to various objects. It is of Hindu origin, but is also used in other Dharmic religions, such as Buddhism. In the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism, they have been developed into sand painting. In practice, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the universe from the human perspective.

In various spiritual traditions, mandala may be employed for focusing attention of aspirants and adepts, a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. Its symbolic nature can help one "to access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious, ultimately assisting the meditator to experience a mystical sense of oneness with the ultimate unity from which the cosmos in all its manifold forms arises." The Psychoanalyst Carl Jung saw the mandala as "a representation of the unconscious self," and believed his paintings of mandalas enabled him to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality."
-- Taken from Wikipedia

The Move: Almost defeated, Sailor Mars tries one last ditch effort to defeat Queen Metallia and stands up. She spreads her arms wide and yells "BURNING...!" as she draws her arms in front of herself and moves them in and out while drawing in several small mandala that form a circle around her body. Once the circle is completed they transform in a bright burst of light into a massive traditional Vajrayana Buddhism mandala. Sailor Mars then crouches and releases a powerful wave of fire as she finishes her attack by yelling, "...MANDALA!"
