Read on to discover more about Mandalas, Lotus Flowers and the symbolism found in this piece...
Mandalas are geometric patterns that hold powerful significance in Buddhism as metaphysical representations of the Universe and thereby symbolize wholeness, oneness and continuity, as well as the spiritual path itself. There are countless types of mandalas that are used in ceremonial rituals, sacred art and as an object of focus in meditation. They can be used as a tool to expand one's consciousness, awareness and wisdom, and are believed to transcend both language and the rational mind due to their visual and mathematical universality.
The Lotus Flower is a sacred symbol of Buddhism and Hinduism and has come to embody many meanings including purity, balance, spiritual development and creation itself, imagined as a kind of divine birth or resurrection - human consciousness reaching for awakening and enlightenment each day as the lotus reaches up from mud to re-bloom each day. Lotus flowers are often found in mandala patterns. In general, the more petals there are the higher the vibration the lotus/mandala is said to contain.
