SEARCHING FOR HOPE

Co-authors: Universidad de Monterrey, N.L.

I was inspired to create this special symbol, by the people in India, and their wonderful culture.
They spend most of their day in prayer, and meditation. This symbol represents the hands of a person in meditation, these hands are the handle of an important temple in India. The circle inside the hands is called SAMSARA which are the eight stages of the hinduism reincarnation, they aspire and they hope to reach Nirvana as Budah did. I chose the color blue which gives the impression of tranquility and it is also in relation with the mind and passion. The yellow color associates with the energy which leads to the same meditation that they also aspire.
