Why is Rangoli Design drawn on the entrance of homes?
Everything that occurs in the world has a purpose. Every tradition and ritual has a rational scientific foundation. Even the tradition of creating rangolis to decorate the front of houses has a purpose. Some ideas claim that there is a connection between geometric patterns and vibrations. Sand on a metal plate vibrated at a specific frequency causes geometric patterns to appear in the sand. The discipline of cymatics is notable for this. Making a rangoli at a doorway is done for cymatical reasons. According to legend, painting a rangoli at the front door is thought to relax guests as they enter the home. The rangoli’s geometric designs become vibrations that are represented by brainwaves.
