In vedic sanskrit dān: the giver, mālā: garland of flowers the giving of flower circles

Kathy Klein is 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 stillness.  Her inspiration is given from the golden sound residing within perfect silence. These offerings are reflections of the inexpressible, a gesture which points towards life’s abundance, an unspoken verse of Love. The danmalas remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery. Blessings


My mom carries an orb of light with her
wherever she goes
She shows it to people sometimes,
and they laugh
Sometimes it’s around her face
and her eyes glow like emeralds
And when she is ready
she sets it on the ground
and flowers hover around it in perfect symmetry
