Our logo, the LOTUS in Myanmar culture symbolizes purity,
and the promise of man to aim for the highest within
himself. This logo, which will be a focal point of our
Corporate Identity, communicates a synthesis of bold, modern
entrepreneurial principles, our aim to be the best combined
with Myanmar culture, which we believe will be a symbol of
achievement for a new era.
The glory of The Lotus
flower in Myanmar is known as the Padonmar Kyar (Nelumbium
speciosum). It blooms high out of lake waters on a graceful
stem and has long been symbol of purity and the ability to
rise to glory. The flowers symbolises the best in man that
he could achieve for himself, and to proudly hold his head
high like the blossom on its stem. Fragrant and
delicate-looking yet with strength rishing high, the lotus
has long been a deep-rooted part of religious beliefs and
culture in Myanmar.
In the old Buddhist text Zi-natta Pakar Thani, it is
recorded that on leaving the palace to start life as an
aesthetic, Prince Siddahta was offered a set of monk's robes
by a Brahma, a celestial being of the highest order, who had
found them in a lotus blossom. Thus on religious days such
as the Full Moon of Thadingyut or Tazaungdaing, both
festivals of light, robes called " Lotus Robes" specially
woven are offered to Buddha images in pagodas. Ninety years
ago a lady of Inle Lake invented a true lotus robe when she
experimented with fibres pulled from the stem to weave into
robes to offer to her revered Abbot. The traditional of this
lotus fibre weaving still continues to this day on Inle
Lake, and can be found in no other part of the world.
Buddha images are often enshrined on thrones with lotus
motifs, in the same way that the Myanmar kings had one
throne out of the requisite nine carved in mango wood with
lotus designs. The stupas of pagodas have a band of small
and large petals high on the spire called the lotus petals.
On the family shrine, no other flower has a more magnificent
aura than fresh lotus buds offered to the Buddha. One of the
five attributes of a perfect woman is that her breath has
the fragrance of lotus "May you be as fresh as a Padonmar
lotus," is a wish often voiced by elders to the
younger-generation. Indeed, what more could one ask?
