Welcome to Blue Lotus Living
My name is DeNel, or DiDi to some friends and family. Blue Lotus Living is my way of sharing my love of yoga with you.
According to Buddhist philosophy, the Blue Lotus is the symbol of the victory of the spirit over the senses, of intelligence and wisdom, of knowledge. It is always represented as a partially opened bud, and its centre is never seen. It is the lotus of Manjusri, and also one of the attributes of Prajnaparamita, the embodiment of the ‘perfection of wisdom’.
The symbolism of the blue lotus is a perfect way to express my yoga journey: always seeking, always growing.
I invite you to join me on your own journey to ‘perfection of wisdom,’ whatever that might mean for you.
