looking in a mirror

The meaning of mirrors is generally symbolic of spiritual and psychological depth. They don’t just reveal our appearance. They can reveal who we are on a deeper level. In Tibetan Buddhism, the mirror is also a symbol of our true nature which is like a mirror in that it is free of any inherent image and reflects all phenomena without distinction.
