Endless Knot

Posted in on 7-21-12




Dharma is continuous and inexorable, while Time is but an illusion. The Knot of Infinity symbolizes that truth. The search for enlightenment need not mean giving up worldly responsibilities. The Knot is a representation of the Buddha’s teaching that religious thought and material life are intertwined.

The Infinite Knot is a line without a beginning or end that radiates both calm and movement. It represents the idea that everything in this world in interconnected. It is also symbolic of the Buddha’s infinite compassion. Originally, this symbol was associated with Vishnu and his abiding love for his consort Lakshmi, goddess of wealth.
