About: chattra’s richly-colored, hand-block-printed yoga and mediation props and bags celebrate India's architecture, design, and spiritual heritage. Sanskrit for parasol, chattra symbolizes dignity and protection. In Buddhism, a chattra tops stupa monuments and often represents the Buddha. The playful and profound elephant-headed Hindu deity Ganesha, remover of obstacles and Lord of Beginnings, often carries a chattra. Lovely meanings to enhance yoga and mediation practice.
