This Oriental OHM lotus lantern can be either set or hung. Through the little door on one of the sides a tealight or candle can be placed. Emits a beautiful, warm amber yellow/brown/orange light.
The lotus flower is very often seen and used in Hinduism and Buddhism, in these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolizes purity, your beauty, inner growth and the connection with the universe.
The lotus flower has symbolic meaning for the “growth towards enlightenment” and is mainly due to the growth process of the flower. The lotus flower rootsin the mud under water and then grows very powerfully towards the light, after which, a beautiful flower blooms on the water’s surface.
We can also go through this process as human beings, then see the mud as ignorance and suffering. As you grow towards the light you become wiser and once enlightenment is achieved, you shine just like the beautiful lotus flower.
Ohm – Om – Aum is the first sound of creation, the breath that belongs to the word. It belongs to no language and existed before the first words were formed. Constant repetition leads to deep meditation. Ohm represents the three states of human beings Waking, dreaming and deep sleep.
The Ohm – mantra is the basis of many other mantras: Ohm mani padme hum, (I) honor the pearl in the lotus (wisdom); Ohm Shanti : (I) wish (you) holy peace.
As a talisman, the Aum / Ohm sign helps to be able to find peace and tranquility within yourself. The sign will bring balance wherever you hang it or put it down.
