The Endless Knot tee has a special significance to the evolution of Cosmic Pretzel. The first time I wore a prototype of this tee in public it caught a strangers eye who asked me where he could get one. I was amazed how quickly this design had made a connection with a passer by. This was the inspiration behind creating the brand.
The Endless, or Eternity Knot is one of the “Eight Auspicious Symbols” of Buddhism. The divine significance of the Endless Knot is that it represents the connection between one’s spiritual path, the movement of time, and the omnipresent Buddha self – or divine eternal consciousness. One can find several other spiritual significances of the knot, for a symbol representing interconnectedness lends itself to many interpretations. Some believe the knot is representative of the endless cycle of Samsara, or continuous succession of birth, death and rebirth. Others believe it signifies the desirable union between right wisdom and right practice, or wisdom and compassion.
