Meaning of Lotus Flower

Flower symbology for the ancient Egyptians

According to the ancient Egyptians, the lotus flower is associated with rebirth, as it retracts into water at night, and emerges into the sun the next day. The Egyptians associated the lotus flower with the sun, which also disappears at night, only to reappear in the morning. Therefore, the lotus came to symbolize the sun and creation. In many hieroglyphic works, the lotus is represented as emerging from the Nun, the primordial water, carried by the Sun God.

Lotus flower in Greek mythology

In Greek mythology, lotus eaters were a people who lived on an island near North Africa and were characterized by eating the fruit of the lotus which, according to stories, had a narcotic effect, causing peaceful sleep and amnesia. In Homer's The Odyssey, where lotus eaters are first mentioned, three men are sent to the island in order to investigate. However, due to the consumption of the lotus flowers offered by their hosts, they forget that they have to return to the ship. Some time later, Ulysses manages to rescue the men. Through this story, Homer appeals to the symbolism of the lotus flower to describe a human desire: the possibility of erasing the past to begin anew.

Lotus flower in Buddhism

In Buddhism, the meaning of the lotus flower is purity of body and soul.

The muddy water that welcomes the plant is associated with attachment and carnal desires, and the immaculate flower that blooms in the water in search of light is the promise of purity and spiritual elevation. The flower is considered pure, as it can emerge from murky water in the morning and be perfectly clean. Therefore, in common with Egyptian mythology, the lotus is seen as a sign of rebirth, but it is also associated with purity and spiritual enlightenment.

Symbolically, the lotus flower is associated with the figure of Buddha and his teachings. Legend has it that when the child Buddha took his first steps, lotus flowers grew everywhere he stepped.

Its meaning in Hinduism

In Hinduism, the meaning of the lotus flower is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality and eternity. The most common form of lotus seen in Hinduism is the white lotus flower.

Many of the gods and goddesses of Hinduism are linked to the flower: for example, the goddess of prosperity, Laxmi, is usually depicted sitting on a fully open lotus flower. Similarly, Brahma, the god of creation is depicted as emerging from a lotus.

Lotus flower in Yoga

In Yoga, there is the lotus mudra, a posture that is performed with both hands where the edges are joined together like the little fingers and thumbs, the other fingers remain extended to the sides forming a flower. The closed or bud lotus flower is a symbol of the infinite possibilities of man, while the open lotus flower represents the creation of the Universe. Using Lotus Mudra is a powerful way to cultivate the spiritual meaning of the lotus flower in one practice.

Towards enlightenment

Just as the lotus flower goes through much of its growth before emerging from the dirty water to become a beautiful flower, the individual consciousness does the same on its path to enlightenment as the so-called impurities of thought are removed. illuminated gradually fade. It is said that the human being must pass through three clearly defined stages in the spiritual life. The lotus also exists in three levels: mud, water and air. It germinates in mud (ignorance), grows through water in an effort to reach the surface (aspiration and effort), and finally reaches the air and direct sunlight (enlightenment). Thus, the lotus symbolizes the growth of the human being from the lowest states of consciousness to the highest. The culmination of lotus growth is a beautiful flower. In the same way, the culmination of the spiritual search of the human being is the awakening and flowering of his potential.
