It encourages people to strive for a sense of peace and enlightenment, just the way the Lord had done himself. We can see some elements of nature like the lotus in the painting. He is often portrayed sitting on a lotus as it symbolizes the one who overcomes pain and emotions. The one who has been pure and has passed buoyed the worldly pleasures. Lotus is considered to be a symbol of purity so the one sitting on it needs to be physically as well as mentally pure. The basic lotus flower symbolism is purity, enlightenment, sanity, and rebirth. This painting gives us a deeper connection to Indian culture and its beliefs.
