The lotus is the foremost symbol of beauty, prosperity and fertility. According to Hinduism, within each human inhabiting the earth is the spirit of the sacred lotus. It represents eternity, purity and divinity and is widely used as a symbol of life, fertility, ever-renewing youth and to describe feminine beauty, especially the eyes.

Many of the gods and goddesses of Hinduism are linked to the flower, for example the goddess of prosperity, Lakshmi, is usually depicted as being seated atop a fully opened lotus flower. Likewise Brahma, the god of creation is depicted as emerging from a lotus that crawls from the naval of the sustainer Lord Vishnu. Above all, it's considered as the national flower...!
