The Shrivasta is a symbol originating from Buddhism.
It is one of the eight signs of luck, known as Ashtamangala.
They are the attributes of Ashtamangala devi the goddess of luck.
Shrivasta means endless knot.
It stands for a long life end never ending love.
I really love this symbol because of its meaning and of its shape.
Because only four colours are used in the pattern it’s easy to change colour of fabric and used thread to adjust to pattern to your personal taste.
It was really fun to embroider this pattern so I made two more variations, look at Shrivasta B and Shrivasta C
