Throughout many cultures over time, the lotus has been a powerful image and a spiritual symbol. In Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian religions, the lotus is considered a sacred flower.
Among its many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of "spontaneous" generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual development and creation itself.
Because the lotus rises from unclean water to blossom as a pure, uncontaminated flower, it is a symbol of purity and resurrection.
In the same way the lotus flower goes through much in its growth before emerging from dirty water to become a beautiful flower, the individual consciousness does the same on its path to enlightenment as the so-called impurities of unenlightened thinking gradually fade.
As the lotus is pure in the water, so the soul is also pure.
In Buddhism, the lotus flower rising and blooming above the murk to symbolizes enlightenment and spiritual awakening. It can also represent purification of the spirit and faithfulness.
The eight-petaled lotus seen in Buddhist mandalas means cosmic harmony. The eight petals of the white lotus correspond to the Noble Eightfold Path of the Good Law.
In Hinduism, the lotus flower meaning is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality, and eternity. It is considered to represent a wise and spiritually enlightened quality in a person.
From my heart I wish you what the lotus flower represents " long Life, Health, purity and and spiritual awakening.
