In Buddhism and Hindu the lotus flower symbolizes purity and enlightenment. In Judaism we light candles and thank God for light as preparation for 25 hours of rest– the Sabbath. Whether you take time to rest and meditate once a day or once a week, the path towards enlightenment and purity of thought is through carving out time to rest. These ground breaking sabbath candle holders bring us closer to God by mixing the teachings from these three religions. Enjoy this heirloom piece for your own family or as a treasured gift for the spiritual people you love in your life. Each one of these is hand finished in our San Francisco studio.
