"Although it is difficult to define life, the five cards stand to express dimensions of life. The sun representing light and heat is the center of all creation. The lotus blooms and brightens the environment. The triangle with upward peak is the tantric symbols to represent man. Male is represented by mountain which is green and the triangle with downside crest reperesents female which is very blue like ocean."--Notes from Creighton Peet, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
