Miracles and Brahma Kamal

Miracles and Brahma Kamal

Miracles lie strewn on our path.

We just have to open our hearts to see them unfold and to be able to experience them.”


A pathway to miracles at the KFI (Sahydari school), Tiwai Hills.


Let's open our hearts to soak in nature's language. After all we are nature, nature is in us. Click To Tweet


Insect- Leaf Insect
A leaf insect takes time to just be. The monsoons have arrived at Sahydari hills two weeks late. But the rain drenched landscape is sprouting seeds of hope in this fertile land.


In a world that is fractured, all that counts is being kind and grateful in the smallest possible way. That would be my tribute to Mother Gaia.


A Brahma Kamal flower (Queen of the Night) only blooms once a year, for one night. It was a deep desire to see this beautiful miracle of a flower bloom. And the Tiwai Hills, at Sahydari school bestowed this gift upon us. Deeply grateful for these unexpected blessings. 




Brahma Kamal is a divine species of flower, Saussurea obvallata or Sacred Saussurea, of the Asteraceae family that has been revered for times immemorial. This unique and rare plant is native to the Himalayas and other mountainous regions of India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet.

Mythology and History

In Hindu mythology, it is said to be the favourite flower of Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, and it is also considered a sacred flower that imparts peace, protection and purity.

The flower, it is believed sprang from Brahma’s head when he created the universe.

Bhrama Kamal was also worshipped by the ancient Greeks and Romans, who associated it with their goddesses of love and fertility, Venus. 

In Buddhism and Hinduism, the flower represents the universe.

It is also regarded as one of Vishnu’s five sacred flowers, or. Pancha-Kamala  Lord Vishnu, the preserver used the flower to resurrect his wife Lakshmi after a demon killed her.

Mythology explains how Lord Brahma created this flower to assist Lord Shiva in placing the head of an elephant on the body of his son, Ganesha.

Ganesha was a naughty child and one day in a fit of rage Lord Shiva cut off his head.

The flower dropped the elixir of life, known as “Amruta,” from its petals onto little Ganesha’s body, bringing him back to life with an elephant head, when Lord Brhama intervened. It thus bestowing Lord Ganesh with wisdom, understanding and discriminating intellect.

Another fascinating mythology is from Ramayana, about the revival of Lakshmana after the Lanka war, with the help of the Sanjeevani herb. When Lakshmana was revived, the gods showered the Brahma Kamal flower from the heavens in deep joy.

As a result, the flower fell to the earth and took roots in the Valley of Flowers and in different parts of the Himalayas.


Medicinally Brahma Kamal is used for fevers, colds, flu, bronchitis, and asthma. The plant helps treat anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

The leaves of Brahma kamal are used to make tea. The tea is said to help relieve headaches, reduce fevers, and promote good digestion. 

This plant is worshipped and revered and known to bring good fortune, peace, harmony, protection and prosperity to those growing it. Ideal to grow it in the North East corner of the home.


Miracles of Nature

Nature is an all encompassing miracle and we humans are a speck in the grand scheme of things.

We are nature and nature is in us. This interconnectedness can never be foregone.

Let’s come together to honour and cherish this miracle we are part of; one that gives and loves us back unconditionally.

Signing off with hope in my heart, knowing any of you reading this will honour and treasure Mother Gaia and believe in  her miracles with gratitude in your hearts.

Love, peace and joy.

  5. We pause in the forest to locate a singing bird. As we listen to its song, we notice a mushroom on the forest floor and a group of pink flowers along the edge of the path. The breeze brushes our face. We are thankful that we are able to enjoy Nature and absorb the Peace which is abundant here.

    Your post today echoes our feelings from the other side of our beautiful planet. No matter where we may be, we share our wonder, our emotions, our inner feelings of calmness.
