Lotus Flower

Lotus Flower

“The Lotus flower could be thought of as an awakened mind, which grows naturally towards the warmth and light of truth, love and compassion. The conditions that produce beautiful life are not always ideal, but that never stops the lotus from rising through adversity, opening its petals, and blossoming in the sun.”

The sacred Lotus Flower emerges clear and bright through the murky water and muddy depths to bloom most beautifully.

The Lotus Flower represents enlightenment, spiritual growth, and purity of body, speech and mind.
