- The symbol Om is a mystic syllable, considered the most sacred mantra in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism. It is also considered by Buddhists to be the first sound in the newly created universe and is the first syllable of the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, prayer to Avalokitsvara, the Compassionate Buddha. It is considered to be a powerful protective symbol.
- In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean. The lotus is seen as a sign of rebirth. The breaking of the surface every morning is also suggestive of desire, and this leads it to being associated with spiritual enlightenment. The Pink lotus flower is the supreme lotus and is considered to be the true lotus of Buddha.
