“A divine Mine only can yield the gems of divine knowledge, and the fragrance of the mystic Flower can be inhaled only in the ideal Garden, and the lilies of ancient wisdom can blossom nowhere except in the city of a stainless heart.” —Baha’u’llah, Kitab-i-Iqan
I love water lilies! The spiritual symbolism of that beautiful flower really resonates with me. It emerges from the muddy depths of dark water, its petals opening and awakening to the light of day. Symbolic of a pure human spirit rising above impurity to find its true station, seeking spiritual enlightenment, the lotus has great significance in many religions, including the Baha’i Faith. Little wonder the design of the Lotus Temple in India reflects such attributes! Thus, these prayer beads were created with the spiritual symbolism of the lotus in mind. This set incorporates pale faceted rose quartz beads to represent the Lotus Temple in India, surrounded by lotus flowers ( pink beads). A silver lotus charm connects the two sections of the prayer beads, and a tiny silver drop imprinted with a lotus hangs from one end.
