This is a pattern to create a cross-stitch design. This is NOT for the finished item.
This pattern features a mandala-style blue lotus flower. The lotus flower represents rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment. The blue lotus flower refers to the common sense; it uses wisdom and logic to create enlightenment. The number of petals in each layer - eight - are representative of the noble eightfold path; one of the principal teachings of the Buddha.
(Disclaimer - I am not a Buddhist, but I admire much of Buddhism and the symbolism of the eightfold path. There is nothing "religious" about this pattern unless you choose it to be.)
The mandala form of this design, the pattern repeated in a circle, symbolizes a balancing - everything symmetrical and balanced.
