Carrying bag with shoulder strap, black with gold lotus pattern, in which the folded bench and cushion fit, clasp with velcro. The lotus flower is widely seen and used in Hinduism and Buddhism; in these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolizes purity, purity, your beauty, inner growth and the connection with the universe. The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning for the ‘growth towards enlightenment’ and is mainly the result of the flower’s growth process. The lotus flower nestles in the mud under water and then grows very vigorously towards the light, after which we can observe a beautiful flower on the water. We can also experience this process as a human being, then see the mud as ignorance and suffering and as you grow your hand becomes wiser and once the lighting has been achieved, you beam like that beautiful lotus flower.
