Thread: Symbol of the lotus flower

The journey of this flower is a reflection of our own journey as yogis. The lotus seed begins to root deep in mucky earth then grows through the nourishment, as well as the illusion and distortion of water to the clarity and light just above the top of the water’s surface. Read on in my blog this week to hear more on this subject.

Lotus Pose, Padmasana

Benefits:

Calms the brain

Stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen, and bladder

Stretches the ankles and knees

Eases menstrual discomfort and sciatica

Consistent practice of this pose until late into pregnancy is said to help ease childbirth.

Traditional texts say that Padmasana destroys all disease and awakens kundalini.

“It's like growing lotus flowers. You cannot grow lotus flowers on marble. You have to grow them on the mud. Without mud you cannot have lotus flowers. Without suffering, you have no way to learn how to be understanding and compassionate.”

- Thich Nhat Hahn
