The lotus flower is a symbol of spiritual growth and ability to overcome obstacles on the path to enlightenment because of its true nature. It grows through muddy waters into a beautiful flower. When it rains, the droplets do not stick to the petals but rather fall peacefully back into the water. The lotus maintains its peace, beauty and purity through all obstacles it faces. It does not allow itself to be distracted from the external world. This conveys that a spiritual person, while living in the world, should remain unaffected by the worldly attractions and should work towards spiritual enlightenment.

Lotus Seed: The spiritual significance of the lotus flower is translated into the use of lotus seeds in everyday life.
