The female Unalome has the spiral opening to the left, the male Unalome spiral opens to the right.
The Unalome is a Buddhist symbol representing the path to enlightenment. It reminds us that the path isn’t always straight or perfect. The journey to awakening can be filled with missteps and lessons to learn.
An Unalome starts at the beginning of the path, the spiral at the base stands for our expanding consciousness when the human mind is in its infancy.
As you travel on the spiritual journey you become wiser, less wayward resulting in the attainment of being on the straight path of understanding. The dot at the top of the Unalome represents the jump into enlightenment at the end of your spiritual journey.
