Dara Celtic Knot

Post # 1
Dara Celtic Knot
___________________________________________________________________

The word Dara originates from the word doire, which is Celtic for oak tree. Oaks were the most blessed of trees to the Celts. The Druids interpreted the language of them to spread meaningful, philosophic messages to others.

Celtic knots are mostly endless. Each of them are a symbol of some form of infinity and eternity. The Celts used stylized knots as decorations, good luck charms, and aids for teaching lessons.
It is a symbol of oak roots, this knot reminded the Celts of the resources that each person possesses in their own roots (or deep inside themselves). It represented the inner strength that should neither be forgotten nor taken for granted. This is a general symbol that all knots represent, an internal strength of the spirit.

Knotwork such as seen in the Book of Kells and other forms of Celtic art was actually introduced by the Vikings during the period from 700-1000AD

During the period in which the Druids were part of Celtic culture (prior to 100AD) knotwork was unknown among the Celts. The artwork of that period (called the La Tene period) consisted mostly of spirals such as seen here: http://benedante.blogspot.com/2013/07/la-tene-art-as-visual-revolution.html

The idea that the knotwork held deep philisophical meanings seems to be a thoroughly modern one.

I didn't mean to come across as being short in my response and I realize that I may have done so. So let me add to what I already posted.

Although historically the Celtic knot artform was probably not used in the manner which your reference said, that does not mean that one cannot use it now as a meditation tool. Like the labyrinth a Celtic knot pattern can be traced with the finger or simply in the mind as a way of inducing a meditative state. And of course, one can assign to them any meaning that the symbols seem to mean to them personally. In this case UPG, unverifiable personal gnosis, may be more important than historical accuracy.
