The Four Ages (yugas) of Hinduism
Satya Yuga, considered the Golden age, is represented by the white triangles. Treta Yuga, is represented in red, as red symbolises the coming of sin. Dvapara Yuga is the age of Krishna and therefore this age is represented by dark blue and black. The pattern is comprised of several Radha Krishna mendhi designs. Kali Yuga is the age in which we are presently living in and is represented by saffron yellow. The pattern is derived from a Rajasthani window frame representing reincarnation.
Each colored section is proportionate to the time length of the four ages.
