Lotus in morning mist

The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind.  The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck. In Buddhism, lotus flowers symbolize purity of speech, mind and body rising above the waters of desire and attachment.

Lotus flowers mean purity of speech, mind, and body….rising above the waters of desire and attachment. The lotus is a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life.
