Colorful seven chakra art project …

FRIDAY: RANDOM

chak·ra (chŭk’rə)
n. One of the seven centers of spiritual energy in the human body according to yoga philosophy.

In honor of my yoga practice, I painted the ancient seven Sanskrit chakra symbols – each on a separate 5” x 5” canvas. They hang outside of Kai’s room to always remind Alex and me to treat him with respect.

According to ancient Indian tradition (over 2,000 years), each chakra has a unique meaning and purpose. Click on the photo below for a larger and readable view of the graph that explains the chakras and their meanings. (I “borrowed” it from another web site that I can’t find right now. Oops!)

ps. I’ve painted the walls behind the paintings white since taking this pic.
