What is Lotus?

 

 

 

 

 

In fact when Buddha was a child there were ponds of different colored lotus flowers outside his  window with pink, white, and blue flowers symbolizing the three different types of people. In  Egypt lotus flowers represent rebirth in the after life. And in India the flower petals represent the elements of the earth. Lotus plants grow in ponds in Asia anchored in the mud rising to the top  bringing forth beautiful white,  pink, and  blue flowers.
