In the Hindu scriptures the lotus represents eternity, purity and divinity. The lotus rises from the miry environment of the material world and passes into the heights of the spiritual realms leading to spiritual liberation and moksha. It is a symbol of purity, untouched by the slush and mud around it.

In the descriptions of the Vedic gods there are innumerable references to the lotus. Most gods are 'lotus eyed', their eyes are large and shaped like the petals of a 'blue lotus'. There are thousands of examples of this in the epics and the puranas. For example, in the Balakanda of Valmiki Ramayana in section 22, verse 4, Rama is said to possess 'rajeev lochanam', rajeev is 'lotus' - more specifically 'blue lotus'. Here is the verse:

"Then on seeing the lotus-eyed Rama following Vishvamitra the breeze became dustless and breezed pleasant for touch. [1-22-4]"

Vedic Gods are described as having
large eyes shaped like a lotus petal.

Lord Vishnu is also described as Lotus-eyed. He is known as 'Kamal-Nayanam'. Lord Shiva is 'Trilochana', 'Triyambaka' as well as 'Trinetra' all referring to his third-eye which emits flames and fire having the capacity to burn anything to ashes.

It is said that about 80 years ago, some ancient Mayan artefacts were found in central Mexico (the exact location has not been revealed). Because the artefacts depict what some say prove the fact that there was a higher species that established contact with earthlings, the Mexican government at that time decided to suppress the information. A couple of years back it was rumoured that Mexico would finally make an announcement to reveal the truth about the artefacts. But so far the Mexican government has not made any revelations and probably never will. 

Some photographs have made their way to the internet courtesy a couple of researchers. It is of interest that what is depicted in these artefacts bears a remarkable resemblance to the 'lotus eyed' Vedic gods. The artefacts also depict 'vimanas' and 'vanara' like creatures. Some have questioned the authenticity of the artefacts but their arguments seem more like attempts to debunk what is probably the truth. Have a look at the artefacts and decide for yourself:

Though information about the dating of the artefacts mentioned above has not become public yet, the fact remains that many Vedic stories such as the 'churning of the ocean' have also been found earlier in other Mayan stone carvings and ancient objects. Sculpture depicting Vedic gods such as Hanuman, artifacts with yogic hand mudras, and Ganesha like idols have been found in Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, Bolivia and other countries of Latin America. Here are a few:
