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.
Floral rose like fragrance mixed with a fresh and grassy aroma.
