Nelumbo nucifera, also known as Indian lotus, sacred lotus, or just lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. It is sometimes called a water lily, though this more often refers to members of the family Nymphaeaceae. Under favorable circumstances, the seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus being from 1,300 years old seeds, as recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern Asia. Therefore, the plant is regarded as a symbol of longevity.
The lotus growing periods can be understood as a representative of five characters: Purity, Cleanings, Demureness, Intactness and Perseverance. The lotus grows from dark marshes to get above the water surfaces to receive sunlight and fresh air, but it is not stained by dirty mud which represents -Purity. When the lotus has fully grown, it purified the water around itself, which represents – Cleansing. The large lotus flower lets off an elegant, aromatic fragrant scent – Demureness – but no insects will come into the flower to take its nectar – Intactness. And despite the hard conditions of its development, the lotus still blooms into gorgeous flowers on the lakes, which represents – Perseverance. These are the deep messages which Buddhists recognized and what we at Saigon Elixir, hope you memorize while seeing a lotus flower.
