The Chinese culture embraces the Lotus as a sacred flower. The White Lotus Flower symbolism is the Luck of All Things and the transition of the mind into Enlightenment.
The Lotus epitomizes the purity of the mind and transcendence. Despite the Lotus growing in muddy water, its flowers are exquisite, causing it’s association with immaculate beauty and virginal innocence.
‘In Buddhism, the Lotus flower symbolism means purity of speech, mind and body rising above the waters of desire and attachment. The lotus is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols. Different colors of lotus are symbolically used to represent aspects of perfection. There are four colors, which are pink, blue, red and white. Red represents the heart–its purity, original nature, compassion, passion, love and other qualities. White symbolizes spiritual perfection and complete mental purity. Pink represents the Buddha
and is the supreme lotus. Blue means wisdom, knowledge and victory over the senses.’ posted by my friend Keeratiwan Kaenthonglang on Facebook.
A lotus pond is viewed as extremely auspicious, but not from the material perspective. Lotus ponds indicate a heightened sense of calm, peace and spiritual enlightenment. In Feng Shui, it as about the pond being a water feature in the correct spot on the exterior of the home.
Two lotus plants characterize pairing, achieving the harmony of one heart. If it bears fruit, it is a good omen the home will receive an abundance of prosperity.
