The Lotus flower is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth, because at night the flower closes and sinks underwater, and at dawn it rises and opens again. According to one creation myth, it was a giant lotus which first rose out of the watery chaos in the beginning of time.
In the East, the Lotus flower is viewed as a symbol of spiritual enfoldment. The lotus has its roots in earthly mud, but as it grows upward in aspiration toward the light, its petals open out into a beautiful flower. Om Mani Padme Hum, meaning, "Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus" is the sacred mantra of the Tibetans.
The lotus ring contains the lotus flower symbol on both sides of the ring. The Hebrew engraved translation is: "Life flows within you and without you". This sentence holds the secret of unification with the One. When our false ego dissolves we enter the state of unification with the whole - hence life flows within you and without you.
