Most mandalas have a lotus flower at the center. The reason for keeping it in the center is, a mandala is viewed from outwards to the center. The utmost form of spiritual energy lies at the center of the mandala, at the Padma.
The Padma is the Sanskrit word for lotus. This aquatic flowering plant plays an important symbolic role in yoga and many Indian religions including Hinduism and Buddhism. It is often referred to as the “sacred lotus.”
The Padma grows from out of the mud, but blooms in perfect beauty above the surface of the water. Thus, it is often seen as a symbol for those who overcome ignorance and suffering in order to find enlightenment and Self-realization. It can be seen as representing the purity of body, mind, and speech, as it rises above attachment and desire, liberated, and full of bliss.
