A purple fabric is the backdrop for the lotus symbol and the phrase "Those who live passionately teach us how to love. Those who love passionately teach us how to live."
Mini Banners are handmade in Bali from 2 layers of durable woven fabric with screen printing on the front layer. There is a wooden dowel at top and bottom to keep the banner flat against the wall. The top dowel has woven cord for hanging.
Banners are often hung in a meditation room, bedroom or in the back yard as a mindful garden accent.
The lotus symbol represents an array of concepts, depending on the school of thought. In Buddhism it is symbolic of purity of the body, speech and mind. Buddhists see this flower that floats above the muddy waters of attachment and desire to be symbolic of detachment. In Hinduism the lotus represents beauty, creation and awakening. These simple concepts stem from a complex history. In Egyptology, the lotus represents the sun. In Western culture the lotus has become a popular symbol of meditation and spiritual growth that may include many of these historical concepts.
