The Lotus Flower is one of the most ancient and deepest meaning symbols of our planet. It grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the Lotus flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, the Lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The Lotus flower represents long life, health, honor, and good luck.

The symbol of the lotus flower appears in many religions and ancient traditions and is treated as a universal symbol of spiritual unfoldment.
Egyptian Lotus flower
The Egyptian Lotus flower symbol was called Sesen in the Egyptian language. In Egyptian mythology, the lotus flower is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth. The beautiful Lotus flower was also depicted as the original container from which Atom, the god of creation or the creator himself came into existence.
Eastern Lotus Flower
In the East, the lotus flower is viewed as a symbol of spiritual unfoldment. The lotus has its roots in earthly mud, but as it grows upward in aspiration toward the light, its petals open out in a beautiful flower. This symbolizes the human situation of the day-to-day life of mud but our ability to aspire upwards to divine and spiritual freedom. Om Mani Padme Hum, meaning, "Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus" is the sacred mantra of the Tibetans.
Christian Lotus Flower
The Christian alternative to the lotus is the white lily which, relating to Mary as queen of heaven, signifies both fertility and purity. Traditionally the Archangel Gabriel carries the lily of the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary. "Blessed are the pure in heart," said Jesus, "for they shall see God."
Indian Yoga Lotus Flower
The Indian Lotus flower symbolizes divinity, fertility, wealth, knowledge and enlightenment. It is associated with the goddess of wealth, Maha Lakshmi, who brings prosperity, purity, and generosity. She sits on a fully blossomed lotus flower, symbolizing purity, beauty and everything that is good.

Lotus flower: Symbol of Spiritual Unfoldment
Within You Without You
"We were talking - about the space between us all and the people -
Who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion never glimpsing the truth
Then it's far too late when they pass away.
We were talking - about the love we all could share
When we find it - to try our best to hold it there - with our love
With our love, we could save the world - if they only knew
Try to realize it's all within yourself - no one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you.
We were talking - about the love that's gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know, they can't see - are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself
Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we are all one
And life flows on within you and without you."
(The last sentence is engraved in Hebrew on the Lotus Ring)
