A lot of us bought at least one time in their life this talisman known as mystic knot, infinity knot or endless knot.
In my opinion is the most famous symbol I have seen in Oriental and Feng Shui Stores.
The mystic knot is also recognised by other names (lucky, love, infinity or never-ending knot) is one of the eight lucky signs of Buddhism. It has this position because of the way it can be twined into a figure “8” without ever having an end point. The number 8 has always been a lucky number for the Chinese due to the fact that saying “8” in Chinese sounds like “fortune”. Because of this reason, this all-round good luck symbol has become an icon for the endless flow of longevity, prosperity, triumph, love and health.
I love 8 :) ... is my Life Path Number and also my Heart's Desire/Soul Number
Apart from being used to encourage longevity and prosperity, it is also commonly used as a symbol of everlasting love, and is therefore used as a gift for couples getting married.
The Endless Knot symbol can be placed on gifts in order to create a favourable link between the giver and receiver of the gift. This symbol will simply act as a reminder of the underlying unification between two or more individuals.
Also, by reminding one’s self and others of the important philosophy of interconnectedness and spiritual consequence, both the giver and receiver can enjoy a small dose of good karma.
Do you have an Endless Knot Painting or decorative object? Where to hung it?
Mystic knot that is hung in the Southwest of your living room brings harmony and unity among family members. Displaying this symbol in the Southwest corner of your bedroom will enhance the relationship of the couple. Using this symbol in the Southwest of the office brings loyalty and harmony among the employer and employees.
If you are looking for a powerful symbol of good fortune, try the mystic knot.
Keep in mind that the use of this Feng shui product can actually bring about a flow of good Chi into every aspect of your life, including love and marriage, and career success and money. It will also keep away all kinds of misfortunes ensuring that your life moves smoothly and easily. So, buy it for your home or office or use it as an amulet. Just make sure that you have at least one of these Feng shui symbols for good luck.
The Endless Knot is also one of the eight auspicious symbols in Tibetan Buddhism, but this symbol is more important than any other seven auspicious symbols.It is an important cultural marker in Tibetan Buddhism culture.
When you pay a visit to Tibet,you will find Endless Knot on the walls,paintings,stones all over the cities and monasteries ( I hope to visit it one day ) ^_^

The knot can be found adorning everything from jewellery to rugs. It is imperative for Buddhists to remember the interconnectedness of all beings and events in space and time, while also considering the eternal energy, wisdom and compassion present in the universe.
The knot also remind the people that all actions dependent on your actions and they has an effect, positive or negative to you according to your doing.
Everything in this world in interconnected remember that !
