About the Candala of Rebirth for 21.12.2012 – Symbolism & Materials

The Candala created for the Peace Ceremony tomorrow has been designed especially for the occasion and takes its prime symbolism from The Phoenix.

A mythical sacred firebird which is revered around the world as a symbol of rebirth, renewal and immortality, The Phoenix has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle. Near the end of this it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.

The Phoenix, with its cyclical regeneration has inspired people down the ages and continues to provide us with a potent, universal symbol for individual and collective transformation. For further information Click here.
