The Buddhist endless knot is a closed, graphic ornament composed of right-angled, intertwined lines. It overlaps without a beginning or an end, symbolizing the Buddha's endless wisdom and compassion. It indicates continuity as the underlying reality of existence. It is conjectured that it may have evolved from an ancient naga symbol with two stylized snakes.
