What Does Meditate KC's Logo Represent?
The Meditate KC logo is a lotus flower with five petals (representing the five elements) enclosed in a circle made up of the twelve lotus petals from the Anahata [Ahn-ah-ha-tah] chakra symbol. It symbolizes the resilience of people as they journey through this shared human experience and seek to learn more about who they are, our relationship with nature, and the connection between mind and body.
Lotus Flower Symbolism - The lotus flower is one of the most ancient symbols of our planet. The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with beauty. At night the flower closes its petals and retires underwater. At sunrise, it emerges and opens again. The lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower also represents long life, health, honor and good luck.
Anahata Chakra Meaning - The Anahata, or heart chakra, is located in the middle of the seven chakras and unites the physical and spiritual chakras. The Anahata chakra serves as a bridge between our body, mind, emotions, and spirit. When your heart chakra is open, you are flowing with love, acceptance, and compassion.
Five Elements Symbolism – The Pancha Mahabhuta is a Sanskrit term meaning "five great elements" and is used to describe the five great elements that are said to be present in everything in the universe, including in the human body. They are Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
