The lotus flower
The lotus flower is very widely found in Hinduism and Buddhism. In these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolizes purity, your beauty, inner growth and the connection to the universe.
The lotus flower has symbolic meaning of “growth towards enlightenment” which is mainly due to the growth process of the flower. The lotus flower roots into the mud under water and then grows very powerfully towards the light, resulting in a beautiful flower we see 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. Once enlightenment is achieved, you shine just like that beautiful lotus flower.
