What is the meaning of the lotus flower? -- In both Hinduism and Buddhism, the lotus Flower is looked at as a symbol of rebirth. Rebirth equally in the literal sense when it comes to reincarnation, and in the sense of a soul getting educated.

In certain sense, it is also Believed to be a sign of purity.

Historical significance -- It is not just Buddhists and Hindus that apply Significance to the lotus flower either. The blossom was also well known through early Egyptian times as the Egyptian god Horus was often depicted seated on a lotus bloom.

The same applies to Hinduism where, for centuries, many Hindu gods have been painted holding lotus flowers or standing within their flowers.

Why is the lotus flower thought to be so pure? -- Lately, the flower is considered as Being pure as, when it develops and the blossom opens up, while it may often be sitting in dirty water, the petals and the centre never touch it.

This is why both Buddhists And Hindus consider the flower as being a symbol of the soul as, no matter what Happens to a person or what they do, the spirit itself always remains clean and pure.
