The lotus is called padma in both Sanskrit and Tibetan. Rooted in muddy slime, the lotus rises through water to emerge into the sun, a progress that mirrors the journey of man's soul. Mired in suffering and sin, we pass through varied experiences before emerging into the sun of enlightenment. Many plants grow above water; it is only the lotus whose sturdy stem allows it to clear the water surface and stand steadfast. Handcrafted: Skillfully created by artisans. Naturally occurring imperfections may be present, adding to the unique beauty of each piece. The natural properties and composition of mined gemstones and organic materials define the artistry of each piece. The image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color and texture.
