This is an interesting Tibetan Mandala, that I recognize seeing before. Does anyone know it's significance and meaning?

I ran a google image search on "cosmic mandala" and that one was very prevelant. I quite enjoyed it so I thought I would share. I wish I knew the significance of this particular one, but I do not. I'm really into meditation, and mandalas can really help you focus if you know how to use them correctly. :D cheers for any more info!

I think I've seen this one at Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal

I will ask my teacher!

Oh! and AMEN for the message!

Just got news from my teacher

Venerable Namgyel:
I contacted one of our monasteries and they confirm what I thought, that it is not the mandala of a deity, but it is a depiction of the universe ..........The continents, oceans, mountains, etc. are as in the mandala offering.
