The lotus flower is very widely seen and used in Hinduism and Buddhism, in these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolizes purity, your beauty, inner growth and connection to the universe.
The lotus flower has symbolic meaning of the “growth towards enlightenment” which is mainly due to the growth process of the flower. The lotus flower roots in the mud under water and then grows very powerfully towards the light. eventually a beautiful flower blooms on the water’s surface.
We can also go through this process as humans. See the mud as ignorance and suffering and as you grow you become wiser, growing towards the light. Once enlightenment is achieved, you shine just like that beautiful lotus flower.
