Buddhist Lotus Blossom Stupa aka "Stupa of Heaped Lotuses" or "Birth of the Sugata Stupa": width — 6.8 cm, height — 12 cm
Also known as "Stupa of Heaped Lotuses" or "Birth of the Sugata Stupa". This stupa refers to the birth of Gautama Buddha. "At birth Buddha took seven steps in each of the four directions" (East, South, West and North). In each direction lotuses sprang, symbolizing the brahmavihāras: love, compassion, joy and equanimity. The four steps of the basis of this stupa is circular, and it is decorated with lotus-petal designs. Occasionally, seven heaped lotus steps are constructed. These refer to the seven first steps of the Buddha.
This stupa is not just a souvenir for decoration. It has been also designed for ritual purpose: there is empty space inside to be filled with mantras and other substances.
