In Ayurveda, Hibiscus is known as japa, which is also the term for meditation on a mantra, or repeated sacred sound or phrase. When used in meditation, Hibiscus brings the mind to the perfect balance of sharpness, to maintain the complexity of the mantra, and calm clarity, to allow the words and sound to flow through and out.
Hibiscus is also used to clear spiritual and material obstacles so that positive change and growth can follow, and when used with a mantra, Hibiscus assists in the realization of the mantra’s purpose.
Hibiscus also brings purity and strength to the heart (as an organ) and Heart (as a sacred center), both of which are needed on the spiritual path.
In our own experience, Hibiscus brings a clear state of calm, in which making any sound feels especially pleasurable and powerful.
