There is a certain parallel between the symbolism of the lotus and that
of the rose in Western culture. In Egypt, the lotus symbolizes nascent life, or first
appearance (19). Saunier regards it as a natural symbol for all forms of evolution
(49). In the Middle Ages it was equated with the mystic ‘Centre’ and, consequently, with the heart (56, 14). As an artistic creation it is related to the mandala,
its significance varying according to the number of its petals: the eight-petalled
lotus-is considered in India as the Centre where Brahma dwells and as the visible
manifestation of his occult activity (26). The figure eight is like the mandorla of
Romanesque art, signifying the intersection of the earth (four, or the square) with
heaven (the circle). The ‘thousand-petalled’ lotus symbolizes the final revelation;
in the centre there is usually a triangle and inside the triangle is the ‘great emptiness’ symbolic of formlessness. René Guénon has examined lotus-symbolism at
great length, observing that The potentialities of being are realized by means of an
activity which is always internal’ (this is the ‘growth’ of Father Gratry) ‘since it
is exercised from the centre of each plane; furthermore, from the metaphysical
point of view, it is impossible for external action to be brought to bear upon the
total being, for such action is possible only on a relative and a particular plane. .
This realization of potentialities is depicted in various symbolisms as the . .
unfolding of a flower on the surface of the “waters”; generally, in oriental traditions, it is a lotus, and a rose or lis in the West. There is a further relationship
between these flowers and the circumference as a symbol of the manifest world,
as well as with the cosmic Wheel. This symbol finds other forms of expression in
many different ways, but always related to the symbolism of numbers, that is,
depending upon the number of petals’ (25). From the remotest days of antiquity,
the lotus was the unanimous choice of the Chinese, the Japanese, the Hindus, the
Egyptians and the Aryans. The lotus flower growing out of the navel of Vishnu,
symbolizes the universe growing out of the central sun—the central point or the
‘unmoved mover’. It is the attribute of many deities (9). In lotus symbolism, the
idea of emanation and of realization predominated over that of the hidden Centre,
which is a Western accretion.
