In Case You Have spent any time In Buddhist countries like Thailand, Cambodia or Myanmar, or from Hindu nations like India, you've probably noticed how often the lotus flower appears in temples, on artwork and in the culture all around.

For many from the west, however, The genuine significance of the lotus flower and why it seems so much in Buddhist and Hindu civilization isn't well known. After all, in Christianity the lotus flower does not really have a significance per se.

So What's the lotus Flower significance, and why is it so significant in Buddhism?

What's 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 has to do with reincarnation, and in the feeling of a soul becoming educated.

In some sense, It's also Believed to be a sign of purity.

This is why you will often See the flower represented in artwork and in temples in Buddhist and Hindu temples.

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

The Exact Same applies to Hinduism at which, for thousands of years, several Hindu gods are painted holding lotus blossoms or standing within their flowers.

What's the lotus flower thought to be this pure? -- Lately, the flower is looked at as Becoming pure as, when it grows and the bloom opens upward, while it may often be sitting in filthy water, the petals and the center never touch it.
