Sacred lotus

Find joy in the priceless gifts that we all have

Gratitude bestowed is never forsaken

Honesty and purity of thought lead to peacefulness and tranquility

Cessation of attachment and cravings free us from enslaving thoughts

The sacred Lotus, Nelumbo nucifera, is an extremely important spiritual symbol in Eastern religions. It represents purity, divine wisdom, and the individual’s progress from the lowest to the highest state of consciousness.

Higher states of consciousness are available to all who seek enlightenment. Looking past our insecurities, defenses and habits are a good starting point. Meditation is the tool to reach past our outer human existence.
