We named this beautiful pranayama bolster in honor of the Himalayas aka in Sanskrit Abode of the Snow
. This massive 1500 mile long mountain range crosses India, Buthan, China, Nepal and Pakistan, profoundly shaping the climate and culture of the Indian subcontinent, with many of its peaks considered sacred in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. India’s holy Ganges originates in the Himalayas: Hinduism believes this most sacred of rivers was held safely in Lord Shiva’s hair then gently released so as not to disturb mother earth.
Pigment printed in blue-gray-white; embroidery detail. This chattra beauty is finished with illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths, and festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover, liner and firm cotton fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.
