It is India's national flower and is associated with wealth, prosperity, purity, and fertility in Buddhism and Hinduism. The flower is native to Asia, with the majority of its population living in India and China. Pink and white are the most common colour variations of the lotus flower. Blue and red are two other popular lotus colours.
The Lotus flower is a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth in many cultures, particularly in eastern religions. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters.
Lotus is a type of plant. Medicine is made from the flowers, seeds, leaves, and parts of the underground stem (rhizome). To stop bleeding, lotus flowers are used. Lotus seeds are used to treat digestive problems, such as diarrhoea.
