The lotus flower: a symbol of purity and longevity

The lotus flower is an important symbol in Japanese culture. It stands for purity and enlightenment. The muddy water in which the lotus flower grows is associated with attachment and carnal desires. The immaculate flower that grows there represents the promise of salvation. Legend has it that when the little Buddha began to walk, a lotus flower blossomed in every place he set foot.

The lotus is also associated with longevity. This is not surprising when you consider that some seeds found in the Chinese province of Liaoning germinated after lying dormant for more than 1300 years!
