This lotus drawing is the exact shape I want for my lotus tattoo. I love the complexity and the fullness in the petals as a line drawing. It's been hard finding a lotus with vertical symmetry. This with an om in the front center petal would be perfect.
Small red lotus. This symbolizes the original nature of the heart (hrdaya). It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart. It is the lotus of Avalokitesvara.
