Lotus Flower

The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the water surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to bloom and turn into a beautiful flower.

Lotus flowers are amazing and have strong symbolic ties within Hinduism and Buddhism. It has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. The meaning varies slightly between the two religions of course but essentially both religious traditions place importance on the lotus flower.

Lotus flower represent life in general. As it grows up from the mud into an object of great beauty people will grow and change into something more beautiful. The symbol represents the struggle of life at its most basic form.
