Book Description Low Price Publications, 2002. Softcover. Condition: New. Seeing the profusion of the lotus flower in the ancient Indian art as seats of the divinities, of the Buddha and as decorative motifs one of the questions that bugs the mind of the viewers may be formulated thus: Is the lotus flower in Indian art an end in itself, or does it symbolize an assortment of thoughts and conceptions when associated with the deities? The Lotus Symbol in Indian Literature and Art attempts to answer some of the queries regarding the symbolical meanings of the lotus flower. The quest for finding the root cause of this preference starts from the earliest books of the Indian literature, viz., the Vedas. To the Vedic people the lotus flower was a supernatural object and to give their supposition an aura of mystery myths were woven regarding its origin. The lotus flower came to be connected with gods and goddesses, with the theory of Creation and in this process different symbolical meanings were attached to it. This trend pursues in the Buddhist art also. The Buddha is always shown as sitting or standing on an open lotus, a direct legacy from the Vedic period. But in the Buddhist period lotus plant with its flowers and leaves became predominantly a symbol of non-attachment to the worldly things. Printed Pages: 104. Seller Inventory # 13098
