Our dear friend Visalakshi, had sent a beautiful Hrudhaya kamalam kolam. An improved version of this kolam can be put with more dots. From the center dot, put 5 dots in a straight line on the 8 sides. Then, start connecting the dots from 1 line to the next line with a curved line in the order of 1,3,5,2,4,1.
This Hrudhaya kamalam is a sacred one called LAXKSMINIVAS, hence should be put in pooja room only and nobody should step on it.
With 4 dots on each side, we can draw different design by connecting 1,2,3,4 or 1,3,2,4.
