"OM" (or "Aum") for Hindus & Buddhists, a mystic word or mantra. OM is regarded as the syllable of the supreme Reality and is sometimes called "the Mother of Mantra"

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet.
The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

This painting is a 6x8 mixed media painting on canvas. I used Acrylic & prisma colour pencils to capture the beauty of the lotus flower.

This painting is a gift for my yoga & fitness teacher Sairah :)
