This classic Chinese style black sandalwood bookmark features a hollowed-out lotus flower and a string of beads–a perfect gift for any occasion.
The lotus is one of the eight precious things in Buddhism because despite of growing out of the mud, it remains pure and unstained. The lotus is said to bloom in Beijing on lunar April 8 (the Buddha’s birthday) and lunar Jan. 8 is Lotus Day. In Buddhism, the lotus symbolizes; one who comes out of the mire but is not sullied, purity, and the ebb and flow of past, present, and future.
