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.
Outer cover, machine wash cold and line dry. Inner liner cover, spot clean.
Tamarind Mehndi Zabuton Meditation Cushion’s print is inspired by the decorative skin art created on hands, feet and arms during Hindu festivals and weddings. The use of mehndi (from the Sanskrit word mendhik?) and haldi (turmeric paste stain) is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books; it symbolizes the outer and inner sun, representing the Vedic idea of awakening the inner light. Hand-block printed in warm, rich brown. Finished with illuminating orange piping and a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert.
The Chattra Tamarind Mehndi Zabuton Meditation Cushion provides comfortable leg and knee support during meditation and pranayama practice; can also be used for padding and gentle support in shoulder stand and other yoga asanas.
