Lotus flower tattoos

Lotus flower meaningsLotus Flower/Water Lily Tattoo Designs -God's favourite flower the lotus has earned such a reputation by appearing front and centre in religious myths around the world. Considered to be perfection in form, the lotus has been associated with many creation myths. With its radiating petals, the lotus connotes the "divine vulva" that gave birth to the gods and goddesses of ancient religions. These deities are often depicted in the company of this pristine flower. It became a sacred symbol for all that is beautiful on earth, and a reflection of divinity, purity and eternity.

As popular as the rose is in the West, so is the lotus in the East. Of all the tattoo flower motifs in the world, the lotus and the rose are the two most powerful. It is not surprising then, that both the lotus and rose are two of the world's most popular tattoo designs.

In India, the "thousand-petaled lotus" (padma) was visualized as the mouth or doorway of the universe, so it's not surprising that it was thought of as the idealized vulva through which all life was delivered. And no surprise that all the primary deities in the Hindu pantheon are depicted with the lotus. Some sit at its centre, some stand or recline, and they're usually shown holding another lotus. Lord Vishnu, one of the three gods of the Hindu triad (trimurti), is described as having the lotus springing from his navel, from which Brahma was born. Lord Krishna was called the "lotus-eyed one", a reference to his divine beauty.

The perfection of the lotus bloom has inspired humans to the highest aspirations. Seeing the lotus blossom "floating" on the water, its petals opening to the sun - this has long been the perfect analogy of the human soul opening to the light of the divine. That is springs from the mud seems like a miracle, all the more so because its petals appear free of any dirt or slime.

Lotus flower bud In its bud form, it is seen as the folded heart with the potential to open up and attain divine realization through spiritual practice and commitment. The folded lotus is therefore a symbol of the greatest human achievement - the journey from ignorance to enlightenment - and suggests that it is a natural consequence of human existence.

In Tantra and Yoga philosophy, the body's seven energy centres (or "chakras") are crowned at the top of the skull by the "thousand-petaled lotus" which symbolizes the attainment of enlightenment.

In both the Hindu and Buddhist religions, the lotus is the symbol of freedom from attachment. This refers again to the lotus being in perfect relationship with its surroundings - totally within the world without being mired or touched by it. In a word, "harmony". Hindu scriptures describe the "lotus in the heart", the resting place of Atman, the soul. From this centre, like the petals of the lotus opening to the light of the sun, beams the light of the soul.
