Logo Chitvan

"Lotus" is an aquatic plant with broad floating green leaves and bright fragrant flowers that grow only in shallow waters. In India the sacred lotus is legendary and much folklore and religious mythology is woven around it. Rich in meaning and metaphor, the Lotus symbolises divinity, fertility, wealth, knowledge and not to forget enlightenment. A symbol of strong vital force that could withstand extremely adverse conditions. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.. It was this depth of thought that made the founding fathers of modern India enshrine the lotus in the Constitution as the National Flower.

Meaning Chitvan

Chitt (Product of Mind, Intellect and Ego), Van (Forest). In the third stage of Hindu Life, in Vanaprashta, i.e. after 50 years of age, man went to the forest to channelize his Chitt. The forest where he went to do the same was termed as Chitt-Van.
