Sankalpa Week: Krishna, Chakra, Lotus and Svasti Symbols

Krishna Chakra Svasti Henna Palm Design by Mehndi NYC

We’ve reached the end of my week about a few symbols I incorporated into henna designs and my sankalpa (intention/purpose) behind them! This is a shot of my palm with Sri Krishna’s profile–my attempt to mimic my teacher Harin Dalal’s style–in a circular sun/chakra design with svasti symbols in the background. The chakra here is depicted here as illuminative and protective; the lotus symbolizes growth (from mud to water’s surface) and the svasti symbols represent/convey blessings, auspiciousness, peace and well-being.
