Decorative crystal lotus with faceted petals reflecting a variety of colors. Measures 3" in diameter.
In Buddhism, the lotus is an important and meaningful symbol of transformation and enlightenment. The lotus grows in muddy water and emerges as a pure and beautiful flower. The mud refers to the realm of samsara, our world of greed, hatred, and ignorance. The lotus symbolizes enlightenment. We live in a world filled with suffering and it is through the boundless wisdom and compassion of Amida that we can awaken to the realm of perfection.
