for the letter I - India, International Day of Yoga 



  1. Thank you for sharing the symbolism of each of the elements of this stamp. I myself have experienced the benefits from yoga and meditation practice from an Indian guru,Sadhguru.

  2. I didn't know about the symbolism - thanks for sharing it today. And nice work on getting a double I.

  3. Its a very calming stamp, interesting to learn of the symbolism.

  4. We write ioga, with an i, in my language. So, triple i for me!
    I like the design and the explanation.
