Although I'm not a Hindu, I once had a beautiful dream about a Hindu lady who presented me with a purple lotus. The dream was AMAZING, but I didn't really understand it, but I remember seeing her eyes and experiencing an intense feeling of love.

I recently bought a statue and researched it, the statue turned out to be Goddess Parvati, and when I saw her image, I realized it was the women in my dream!

What is the significance of a purple Lotus flower and Goddess Parvati?

I'd love to learn more!

    Can you remove personal details and ask about Devi Parvati? Btw, your past life connections may be reason for your dream about Adi Parashakti or Mother Durga or Mother Parvati.

    Oh, You seem very fortunate one to have glimpse of Ma Parvati. As you have mentioned you were never aware of this personality, you must take this dream seriously. Parvati is manifestation of Adi Shakti. And Purple or deep indigo (maybe you have actually seen Indigo)color is the color of 6th chakra. And Chakra is represented by Lotus. So, your dream seems meaningful as well. You can read about Adi Shakti here. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Parashakti Mar 16 '17 at 17:57

    @Seeker I think Ajna Chakra (6th Chakra) represents Shiva and Shakti both, but generally Shiva (may be Shakti is included implicitly) as it represents 3rd eye.
