The figure of the meditating Buddha set within the background of mother Earth, symbolizes that the eternal truths on the path of Buddhism will guide and enlighten everybody in this world. The sign of infinity in red is also the Ouroboros and it reinforces the endless nature of the universe. Within the upper loop is the yellow flame of enlightenment with eight rays that emit endlessly in every direction. These are likened to the eight spokes of The Dharmachakra or the Wheel of Dharma, a common Buddhist symbol and represent the 'Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism'. The world is full of desires and trying to fulfill these desires one gets sucked into the cycle of life and death or rather the cause and effect of ' Karma'. Complete freedom from this cyclical renewal and destruction is attaining 'Nirvana' or 'Spiritual Enlightenment'. (In the Sanskrit word Nirvana – 'Ni' means negation or without and 'Vana' means weaving or craving). In India and in Buddhism the symbol of Lotus is of primary importance. It refers to the complete purification of body, speech and mind, and the blossoming of wholesome deeds in liberation. The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.
Aspects that are covered by this symbol are, growing from the mud (sanmsara), appearing clean on the surface (purification), and producing a beautiful flower (enlightenment). The four corners of the card are occupied with four different coloured lotuses that are coupled with the triangles showing the stable four elements of Air, Water, Earth and Fire. Symbols and colours on the World card: The Triangles represent the Four elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth. The Wyrm Ouroboros or the symbol of Infinity. Red to signify passion and energy. The World / Earth. The two hands' gesture refers to the Turning the Wheel of Dharma while in meditation. The gesture of the right hand stands for turning the wheel of Dharma, while that of the left hand symbolizes meditation. The open palm blesses everyone who seeks the path of Buddhism or enlightenment. The White Lotus – Spiritual perfection – Air – Clouds The Blue Violet Lotus – Water – Waves The Green Brown Lotus – Earth – Mud and Vegetation The Red Orange Lotus – heart's passion and love – Fire – Flames. The Yellow Flame – Spiritual Enlightenment. Maroon background – Colour of the Buddhist Robes Meditating Buddha – Ultimate salvation ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
The 21st card of the Major Arcana, The World signifies completion and the end of The Fool's journey. Spiritual Interpretation: The most subtle and primary meaning that is put forward by this card is of 'infinity' and 'continuity'. Destruction that assures renewal; Life that will come after Death; Putting one's self First and Last in the cosmic order; viewing the macro and micro aspects of existence from the 'Outside' so that it gives you the 'Inside' perspective. Practical Interpretation: This card gives the message that 'he World' is yours finally! It talks about completing the tasks at hand and of the world (people) appreciating your effort and giving you recognition that your success demands. It talks about rewards in terms of health and wealth. It indicates travel and moving places and a sense of achievement that fulfills the complete picture in the world of your dreams. Reversed Meaning: There is stagnation and disappointment right now and this imbalance can be corrected by putting in more energy and effort. The inability to accept delay may leave one dissatisfied and by being patient time will unfold the success you crave for. It means you are almost there, don't give up but put in more of right effort
