Kathy Klein's Danmalas
These stunning flower circles or danmalas (in vedic sanskrit dān: the giver, mālā: garland of flowers) are the creations of Kathy Klein, a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine presence within all.She creates the danmalas by first centering herself in a meditative devotional space. Next she gathers flowers and natural objects while her mind is kept in mantra, resting in the immaterial. Then, through an act of grace and giving to all, she allows the materials to fall to the will of creation patterns.
