White Lotus – A Powerful Symbol of Resilience
There are many eastern interpretations for the white lotus flower. A white lotus grows from the mud and murkiness, into a beautiful bloom rising above the water’s surface. Some say it means purification, and others surmise its meaning to be one of “getting above it all” as in getting out of the mud, growing and gaining self awareness – personally and or professionally. In the spirituality of Buddhism, a white lotus is seen as a sign of good fortune, and pure intentions.
