Indian Six

We already saw on this blog that six is the number related to the six pointed star in Judaism Islam and Hellenism (Pythagoras) - now I found out that also the Indians tie this emblem to the same number:
From: Dancing With Siva: Hinduism's Contemporary Catechism p. 728
(Himalayan Academy, 2003 ISBN 0945497962):
"Shatkona, “six-pointed star,” is two interlocking triangles, the upper stand for Siva, purusha and fire, and the lower for Shakti, prakriti and water. Their union gives birth to Sanat-kumara, whose sacred number is six".
