The lotus is a sacred plant, symbolizing the original purity. Its rhizomes are immersed in dirt, but the flowers and leaves remain clean, rising high above the water and above all earthly. It is believed that a person, being among the "dirt" of modern society, must remain internally free from it, unspotted. People breathing in the scent of a lotus receive its protection.
The gods in various religions are often depicted sitting on a blossoming lotus flower. It is a symbol of the full disclosure of the soul and spirit. The rhizome, which is in silt, symbolizes the material world, the stem that stretches upward is the soul, and the flower that does not touch the water and is open to the Sun is the spirit. Lotus reminds us of spirituality, chastity, God. A lot of things are associated with this plant. For example, it also symbolizes the unity of times: past, present, and future — seeds, unblown buds, and open flowers are simultaneously present on the same lotus plant in an unusual way. The connection of the lotus with the basic elements is noteworthy: there is its root in the earth, a stem in the water, leaves in the air, and flowers are turned to the sun fire.
