3. The Lotus Mudra: the Mudra of Light
Lotus has a very interesting symbolism in many ancient civilisations and traditions including India and Egypt. In both traditions, the lotus is a symbol of Light which rises from Chaos and Darkness. It is no wonder why the Lotus flower is used as an element for decorating sacred temples and sites in India and Egypt.
The Lotus Mudra, is used to help us rise from darkness and conjunct with the Holy Light. As the Lotus flower rises up out of the swamp’s mud without a drop of mud on it, so can we rise up and see the light once again, without any trace of darkness, free from negativity.
