About Lotus Seed:
Lotus Seed beads are dried seeds from plants of the genus Nelumbo. Lotus Seeds are important in many parts of Asia and the Indian subcontinent in everything from religion to medicine to food.
Lotus Flower: Great significance in Tibetan Buddhism. Many deities are depicted seated upon lotus flowers, or in some cases such as Padmasambhava (The Lotus Born), having arisen from Lotus Flowers. The lotus has a special quality of being pristine and beautiful, and having prominently arisen from the murkiness of a swamp. This signifies our Buddha Nature: from the darkness of our confusion, the brightness of our awakened heart can be born.
Carnelian: Helps balance creativity and mental processes, and increase passion and compassion. In the Feng Shui tradition, orange is associated with creativity, abundance, organization and is “Yang.” This stone is associated with the second chakra and folklored to evoke fertility and inspire passion.
