What Makes the Lotus Flower so Special?

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet.
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.

    • Not surprised this is coming up…..the controversy or rather, the confusion about water lily and the lotus; for instance, to the ‘botanical geeks’ the legendary “Egyptian Lotus” is simply a white water lily and you can replicate this scientific classification/nomenclature in various regions and cultures. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and rest assured that I respect and welcome such frank opinions!
