The florists and the wedding organizer consider the lotus is the beautiful flower, and it has deep layers of symbolism in Asian cultures. Since the flower is native to most of the countries in Asia, it’s no wonder that both ancient and modern residents appreciate its beauty on a deeper level. Every single details in the wedding decoration couldn’t be neglect.
The lotus represented something unearthly and enlightening for Eastern cultures, which is why the flower is often seen alongside divine figures. In Buddhist and Egyptian culture, the flower represented the universe. In Hindu culture, it is said that gods and goddesses sat on lotus thrones. And according to Buddhist myth, the Buddha appeared atop a floating lotus, and his first footsteps on Earth left lotus blossoms.
The lotus is the symbol of the purity we find when we begin to raise our consciousness and touch upon our own divinity. Just like the lotus flower working its way through the muddy waters, we too work through our own limitations until we discover the bliss found in the enlightened mind.
The lotus is a symbol of sacred spirituality that shows us we can overcome even the most difficult of circumstances and feel the innate beauty life can offer. The lotus is vibrant cosmic energy, the purity of consciousness, and the promise of spiritual renewal.
To Buddhists of all traditions, the lotus is a symbol of rising out of the material world and into spiritual union with the entire universe, also known as enlightenment. This is because the Gautama Buddha used the flower to explain how the soul is never soiled by the dirt of living like the lotus is untouched by the mud it rises from as it grows. In the Mahayana branch of Buddhism, followers believe the souls themselves emerge from blooming blossoms before entering newly born infants.
In Hinduism, the meaning is similar but expressed a little differently. The lotus symbolizes the purity of the human soul and its ability to transcend physical limitations like birth and death. It’s most associated with deities representing creativity and wealth, such as Sarasvati, Lakshmi, and Brahma. Lotuses are also the symbols of the chakras, the energy centers thought to control both the physical health and spiritual condition of the individual.
