Artist's Description

The Taj Mahal is a symbol of eternal Love and is considered one of the MOST beautiful places in the world. It is also said that any sinner that comes to this place that all his past sins will be washed away.

In 1632 Emperor Shah Jahan had this building built in honor of his 3rd wife who passed away a year before due to giving birth to her 14th child.

Once complete Emperor Shah Jahan himself described the Taj in these words: “Should guilty seek asylum here, Like one pardoned, he becomes free from sin. Should a sinner make his way to this mansion, All his past sins are to be washed away. The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs; And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes. In this world this edifice has been made; To display thereby the creator’s glory.”

One of the many meanings of the lotus is representing beauty. It is also rooted in the mud but floats on the water with out becoming wet or muddy. This is symbolic of how we should live in the world in order to gain release from rebirth.

“One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful action, as the lotus leaf is untouched by water.” – Bhagavad Gita 5.10
