The being comprehends symbols at different levels, from his human condition to the metaphysical and properly supra-human order. Indeed, the symbol finds its source beyond the human world, within the divine Principle or Unity at the origin of the manifested world diversity. Any being or thing is related to the Unity, from which it constitutes a reflection.
Symbolism does not express, it suggests a correspondence between Unity and diversity, the non-manifested and the manifested, the invisible and the visible, night and day, darkness and light as the lotus coming out from depths to surface waters.
This web site tries to bring different spiritual traditions together to highlight various symbols and approach, as far as possible, their common source. It covers fundamental and ancient symbols as well as themes closer to us as arts, nature, games, feasts, flags and currencies.
The introduction illuminates the symbolism features with the help of a very old symbol, the pyramid.
Quotation of the day
Humanity would have been happy a long time ago if all the genius of mankind used to repair his mistakes had been employed not to make them.
