Has the same significance as the Indian Lotus. Its roots are in mud, it reaches up through water, and opens in air to the sun. This symbolises the roots of our consciousness in the deeps of the unconscious and material experience. This unfolds into feeling values, emotions, the psychic realm, and eventually blossoms into intellect, self realisation that realises the Sun, or spirit. In the Indian scriptures the petals of the mythical lotus unfold to reveal a jewel at the centre. This represents the unfolding of human consciousness to a realisation of the eternal nature underlying all its activities.
