Symbolic Meaning of the 2 Lotus Flowers
Our Khadiravani Tara statue is featured with 2 lotus flowers. Indeed, the lotus flower is a very important Buddhist symbol. This is because a lotus flower rises out of the murky pond to blossom in the clean air above the water. As a result, it serves as a symbol for the ability of Buddhists to navigate the sea of suffering and obtain enlightenment.
The stem of the lotus is gently held between her thumb and ring finger in her left hand. This lotus is in full blossom over her left shoulder and symbolizes the purity and sanctity of Enlightenment.
Additionally, Khadiravani Tara holds the stem of a second lotus flower in her right hand between the thumb and palm. This flower is growing over her right shoulder. The blossom is unopened and it symbolizes the fruits of enlightenment that await devotees.
