Mandala ni Bathla May Kapal by Lakandiwa Mandala ni Bathla May Kapal by Lakandiwa
Mandala ni Bathla May Kapal
(Mandala of God)

“Sa kalawakan ng kalahatan
Sa kataasan ng langit
Sa sapupunan ng kalikasan
Sa yakap ng lupa
Sa isip ng sangkatauhan
Sa tibok n gating mga puso . . .

Iliyab ang pagmamahal

Ng pagkakaisa

Sa mata

Sa puso

Sa diwa

Ni Bathala”

“In expanse of the universe
In the skies above
In the womb of nature
In the embrace of the earth
In the thoughts of humanity
In the beating of our hearts . . .

Ignites the blaze of love

Of a union

In the eyes

In the heart

In the spirit

Of God”

* In my studies of the ancient Tagalog script of the Baybayin, I have discovered the beauty in it calligraphic use. I took the time to study the aesthetics of Islamic calligraphy, then I applied it to the Tagalog script called the Baybayin. I am however using the Lopez variation to the script to allow me more leeway in the expressions of the words.

I am also presently doing some historical research on my hypothesis that the Baybayin was actually written in a calligraphic style, at least 100 years before the Spanish colonization of the Philippines.
