Sacred Symbolism in this collection:
The Lotus Mudra, or the Mudra of the Buddha represents the ultimate awakening; that which is beyond words.
Lotus: The bud of the lotus symbolizes potential, specifically of a spiritual nature. Because the lotus rises from unclean water to blossom as a pure, uncontaminated flower, it is a symbol of purity and resurrection. In the same way the lotus flower goes through much in its growth before emerging from dirty water to become a beautiful flower, the individual consciousness does the same on its path to enlightenment as the so-called impurities of unenlightened thinking gradually fade.
Aham Brahmasmi: The literal translation is “I AM THAT.” It’s a Sanskrit sutra which means “the core of my being is the ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source of all that exists.” When we repeat this sutra and let it resonate deep within, we expand our awareness of our eternal, unbounded nature.
Moksha: The most pure essence of Moksha represents liberation from the bondage of a repeated process of death and rebirth, or a continual living of the same lessons. By releasing from this cycle, the suffering involved can also be released. Moksha is achieved by removing ignorance and reaching an understanding that the world is impermanent and that consciousness is the only true existence. Moksha is seen as a final release from illusion, and the knof one’s own fundamental nature. As most repeated life lessons appear in the form of toxic relationships, patterns and environments, achieving Moksha and breaking these cycles bring true emotional freedom.
Ganesh: Known as the “Lord of Obstacles,” Ganesh is traditionally honored for removing obstacles from our path and allowing for a smooth, effortless flow through life. Occasionally though, Ganesh is known to place obstacles in our path when necessary for our growth, evolution and learning of valuable lessons. Ganesh supports our awakening in all aspects of life, and also is a gentle reminder of self-control and moderation. He is the protector or travelers, dispeller of ignorance and great harnesser of universal energy.
