The Lotus Mudra is a symbol of purity. A Lotus flower sits on the surface of the pond, opening to the sun as it's roots remain deeply embedded into the muddy bottom, holding it firm and strong.  It is is symbol of light and beauty emerging from darkness.  The message of the lotus mudra is to be connected to your roots, open yourself to the light and realise that the greatest sense of steadiness in life is an open heart.
