Feng Shui Mystic Knot Meaning
Mystic knot, one of the most often used symbols in feng shui. This knot symbolizes a happy and long life full of good fortune. Being a combination of 6 times the infinity symbol, mystic knot is also referred to as the endless knot or eternal knot (in chinese it is also called “Pan Chang” knot). This mystic knot is one of the 8 magical auspicious objects in Buddhism. It indicates no beginning and no ending, reflecting the philosophy of Buddhism of endless rounds of birth and rebirth.
It is conjectured that this popular symbol may have evolved from the Naga, which is an ancient symbol of two intertwined snakes. This dueling snake image signifies the dramatic interaction and interplay of two different opposing forces in life; good and evil. These two are united as one eventually and create harmony in the universe (just like Yin and Yang). The intertwining of these lines also represents past, present and future that are bound by a never-ending cycle of cause and effect. Thus this symbol is also used to remind people that future positive effects have thier roots in the actions of the present.
