Our Logo

Nourishing Thy Self Logo

As the Lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by mud and water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world. At Nourishing Thyself Clinic, we represent “nude” (a Hindi word) which means clean, pure, transparent and fresh. Nourishing the body, mind and soul are all perfect descriptions of the ambience of our beautiful health and wellness clinic and its offerings. The sacred Lotus flower represents beauty, compassion and the expansion of the truest self. Gracefully raising its elegant body above the muddy waters where it grows, the Lotus has long been revered by Buddhists, and the Lotus bud is perhaps the single most popular offering of Buddhism in temples.

According to ancient legend, the Buddha was born able to walk, and with each step Lotus flowers bloomed under his feet. The Buddha is often depicted sitting on a giant Lotus blossom, representing who we are: pure body, mind and spirit, along with spiritual perfection and pacification of ones nature. It is also associated with purity, beauty, rebirth and divinity. A Lotus flower generally has eight petals, which correspond to the eightfold path of good law. Like the Lotus, Nourishing Thyself Clinic symbolizes beauty, and purity of speech, the body, and the mind. Furthermore, it symbolizes the achievement of awakening or enlightenment, knowledge, divinity, wisdom, rebirth, intelligence, love, compassion, passion, and other emotions associated with the heart.

The Lotus flower is representative of how a person can become awakened to spiritual reality. The pink Lotus flower is the supreme Lotus flower, and is considered to be the most divine. We walk with grace to symbolize the beauty and openness of a giving heart!
