In Indian spiritual traditions, the image of the lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) appears regularly in texts and images. It is highly symbolic because of the way it grows: deeply rooted in murky, muddy ponds, its flowers rise high above the waters on their slender stalks, thus always appearing in beautiful, untarnished perfection. They are a symbol for our ability to leave behind us the dark, often difficult daily life and grow to bloom in an expression of our own perfect nature.

Another significant element of the lotus is the central “lotus throne” of the lotus flower. Gods and Goddesses are often seated on such a throne, and in meditation they are invited to take their seat there.


In this series, the lotus flowers each correspond to one of the three bindus (energetic centers) known in Classical Tantra – the red bindu of the base, the blue bindu of the heart and the white bindu of the crown.

The red lotus is the lotus of the lower (red) bindu, located in the kaṇḍa, with its fiery energy of embodiment.

The blue lotus is the lotus of the heart bindu, located at the base of the heart, with its gold energy of love and compassion.

The white lotus is the lotus of the crown bindu, located in the center of the head (crown), with its crystal energy of all-encompassing clarity.
