Lotus Flower

Lotus Flower

The lotus is an amazing flower. Not only is it a symbol of wisdom and purity, it has a range of spiritual overtones that serve as popular aids to learning.

The lotus, emerging from the water and standing above it – undrenched and unsullied – has come to be accepted as a symbol of enlightenment and purity of mind in Buddhist and Hindu thought. Not only is the lotus in bloom a pretty sight, it evokes positive thoughts in one who links it with his own journey on the spiritual path.
