Buddhist iPhone apps are all the rage—at least among Buddhists with iPhones or iPod Touches. So to these people we say meet Melodala, “an iPhone app inspired by Tibetan Buddhism.” Plug in some settings and color preferences and it makes pretty roundish pictures while you listen to music. If this is your thing, you can find Melodala here. It costs $2.99. Here’s Wikipedia with more information on mandalas, and here’s the video of a sand mandala being made and unmade.
