The coconut symbolizes our awareness. It is chosen because it has a very hard outer shell that must be broken into to get at that parts that are edible (representing ego and the body). The coconut is also chosen as a symbol because its three eyes - the two physical eyes and the third eye, the eye of wisdom unopened. Symbolically, when the coconut is broken it symbolizes the ego shell breaking and the heart, the essence which gives life, being allowed to come out and be made available. The contents, the heart of the coconut and the symbolically the heart of our being, can then be surrendered to be eaten and consumed to nourish a new life.
