Lotus flower is a symbol of purity and divinity.
Primarily associated with the gods Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi, the flower’s opening petals symbolize spiritual awakening and the expansion of the soul.
The lotus is a flower that emerges from a very vile atmosphere, it usually blooms in muddy waters. However, despite its struggles, the lotus bud emerges from those waters, eventually demonstrating a magnificent bloom. Even after emerging from the mud, it remains unstained!
No wonder it is considered to be the most divine and is only awarded to those of the highest standing.
The lotus flower represents life.
Sometimes, our circumstances are not wonderful. We might find ourselves buried in conflict, hardship, or internal suffering. These conditions do NOT make us any less worthy or beautiful.
The ultimate aim of living beings is to perform its karma without bothering about the external factors, which is signified by Lotus flower.
Just because Goddess Lakshmi is seated on lotus, offering her 108 or 1008 lotus flower won’t help if you remain impure within mind.
