The lotus is an amazing flower. Not only it is a symbol of wisdom and purity, it has a range of spiritual overtones that serve as popular aids to learning. The lotus, emerging from the water and standing above it - undrenched and unsullied - has come to be accepted as a symbol of enlightenment and purity of mind in Buddhist and Hindu thought. Not only is the lotus in bloom a pretty sight, it evokes positive thoughts in one who links it with his own journey on the spiritual path. The Lotus flower has for thousands of years symbolized spiritual enlightenment. Indeed, this flower essence's purpose is to accelerate spiritual evolvement and enhance healing on every level within the system.
