Thank you for the fast response Lakshmi, the rangoli looks so beautiful! Are there any rules about using certain colors (since this is for the anathana vratham), or could we use any colors?

I am always reminded by the story of anaMtavrata. It has some relevance to rangOlis too. There was a learned brahmin who becomes a tree in a forest in his next birth. The reason for this is that while he was very wise, he never imparted his knowledge to others. All knowledge, including rangOlis, must be freely imparted and not kept secretive. Regards! - mOhana

mOhanaji yes ur mum is telling same thing always. Whatever knowledge we have it should be shared/thought to others. Let noble thoughts come from all directions.

Lakshmi, Long back in my office kolam competition I have put similar rangoli and drawn small deepams on the lines ending and given the caption of the rangoli as "Ellellu belekali gnanadha jyothi( since it was a Kannada sanga program).As all our members expressed, Knowledge grows by sharing. See your nice rangoli evoked so many devine thoughts!
