Wood Block Candle -- Lotus design

$ 14.00

Wood Block Lotus Candle...beautiful, hand-crafted ambiance for your practice space.

chattra yoga bolsters, meditation cushions and bags are crafted using traditional  textile techniques:  Indian artisans press ink to fabric with hand-carved wooden blocks, resulting in beautiful, rich textile designs.  The wood blocks themselves are super lovely; so, we thought, why not make them into candle holders? 

Representing divine beauty and purity, a lotus blooms above murky water, never getting wet.  Its petals represent the expanding soul and spiritual awakening.  This auspicious flower is a lovely metaphor for living beings: performing its karma without bothering about external factors.  Many Hindu gods and goddesses are associated with the lotus, including Lakshmi, Vishnu, Brahma and Saraswati.
