8th May – White Lotus Day, the Day of the Passing of Helena P. Blavatsky

By Luphil

The 8th May is celebrated as ‘White Lotus Day’, in remembrance of Helena P. Blavatsky (1831-1891), who passed over on this day in the year 1891 – 130 years ago. Madam Blavatsky is regarded as the white lotus that unfolds afresh the beauty and fragrance of new age wisdom. She synthesized the universal wisdom and presented afresh Cosmogenesis and Anthropogenesis, explaining skilfully the story of man on earth. In all she did, she dedicated entirely her life to the noble work of the Hierarchy.

In the book “Symbolism of the Scriptures”, Overseas Messages 9, Master EK explains the symbol of the white lotus and gives a beautiful visuation:

The Goddess of Wisdom, Saraswathi, “is the Goddess who conveys knowledge through the living beings. She is described as seated in a milk white lotus. So, to those who have studied the Indian scriptures, the milk white lotus is a very sacred symbol. It is a symbol of wisdom and the joy that is felt through wisdom. A meditation of the milk white lotus in mind purifies all the mental vehicles within a short period. If you are lucky, within a shortest period, this is three years according to the Masters. The meditation of the white lotus opens up the gates in your personality, so that your Master makes a contact with you. You cannot make a contact with your Master.
Master does not mean any name we think of, which means someone who knows us, whom we do not know. If we think that we know our Master, he is only our idea but not our Master. So, the fact is the Master knows us. We never know who the Master is. That is how it is described in the scriptures. But a meditation of the white lotus daily for a few minutes opens up the gates of your personality that are working as barriers between you and your Master in the form of your belief and your own valuable concepts which you are not ready to part with. So, it is a healing from self-conditioning that we get by meditating upon this white lotus. To make us meditate upon the white lotus while reading the scriptures they have described the Goddess of Wisdom sitting in a white lotus.”

May we remember her HPB’s life and work to also devote our lives to the work for the Divine Plan.
