Aditi and Avatar
The red lotus is the Avatar.
The white lotus is the Divine Consciousness.
In a general way the lotus is the
flower of the Divine Wisdom, whatever its colour, But red signifies
the Avatar, the Divine incarnated in matter, and white signifies
the Divine Consciousness manifested upon earth.
Surely for the earth- consciousness the very fact that the divine manifest himself is the greatest of all splendours. Consider the obscurity here and what it would be if the Divine did not directly intervene and the Light of Lights did not break out of the obscurity- for that is the meaning of the manifestation.

for which the Avatars descend is to raise up man again and again,
developing in him a higher and ever-higher humanity, a greater
and yet greater development of divine being, bringing more and
more of heaven again and again upon earth until our toil is
done, our work accomplished and Sachchidananda fulfilled in
all even here, even in this material universe.
