My favorite flower is the lotus flower. The symbolism is amazing.something that thrives in a dark muddy murky environment to push toward the surface of the water and bloom with such vivid beautiful color. I want to be more like the lotus.
A White Lotus symbolizes Bodhi (Sanskrit for enlightenment). It symbolizes a pure body, mind and spirit, along with spiritual perfection and a pacification of one's nature. A lotus flower normally has eight petals, which corresponds to the Eightfold Path
