Zen in nature - lotus flower The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning which represents being pure in one's spirits.The flower produces beautiful petal even if it grew in the dirtiest waters. The lotus flower symbolizes rising up out of badness and grief. For instance, if you try putting water on a petal of a lotus flower the water will not stick to it, but just simply roll off as a sign of freedom.
In sharing its fragrance with the world, it leaves the mud far behind. The large rounded leaves are water-resistant, as the flower reaches toward the sky, they form a dark green barrier separating the newly formed flower from the mud and water below. The flower exists as a part of its environment, and separate from it at the same time - D Ambasana
