Lotus is the most represented flower in eastern traditions and religions which is a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth. The lotus is also an emblem of Thai art which is a flower most respected in Buddhism of Thailand which lotus flower’s iconography and spiritual history are rich and deep. A journey from a muddy seed to a glorious blossom offers hope which means something beautiful can grow from suffering and that will eventually bloom. Therefore, the lotus is a token of perseverance and hope, a reminder to always trust in the unseen path that leads to the sun. Although cultures have their own interpretations of this daily process, there is a general consensus among ancient texts that it symbolizes spiritual enlightenment and rebirth.
