Description

In this design, created for Buddhist monasteries and the Dalai Lama, the weavers have portrayed the path to enlightenment, both in the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism represented by the pattern and in the brightness of the colours chosen.

As with many such textiles, the symbolism is deep and varied in our Chakra pattern. Most prominent, though, is the circular shape of the Wheel of Dharma. Representing knowledge, the wheel is known as Dharmachakra in Sanskrit, giving us the name for this colourful cover design.
