Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the Asian symbol of the lotus flower symbolizes a spiritual renewal and awakening. The lotus is particularly magical because it is the only flower that starts growing in the mud and muck of a pond, slowly making its way to the water’s surface as it moves toward the light above.
Like the struggles we face in life, lotus flowers are a reminder of how we can rise above the challenges we face. Its blossoms show that we can fully realize our God-given potential as we push forward toward our goals. Hindus and Buddhists have elevated this elegant flower to represent the essential symbol for spiritual awakening, and they celebrate the elegance of the lotus as it rises above the surface of the water into a beautiful blossom.
This unique lotus pendant and earrings set is steeped in ancient Tibetan tradition, and is a reminder of our ability to overcome difficult times and continue on a path of spiritual growth. In addition to its ties to Asian tradition, the lotus flower and leaves are also symbolic of divine purity, since the leaves grow out of water instead of the earth. Many people simply choose this graceful design for its sinuous lines and delicate, shimmering beauty.
