I remember the time I started reading about lotus flower was when I used the lotus symbol in the "toran" that I had made during Soniya's wedding. I was fascinated with the facts that I read and the beauty of the lotus of course!

Here are few interesting facts about lotus:

  1. In hindu religion, the Lotus is used by goddess of wealth Maha Lakshmi. She sits on a fully blossomed lotus flower.

  2. The Lotus flower grows in murky waters and rises on a long stalk above the surface to bloom glorious. Thus untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes heart and mind.

  3. The Lotus seeds can germinate 200 years after they are shed. Hence lotus is a symbol of strong vital force that could withstand extremely adverse conditions. The lotus flower thus represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

  4. The Lotus Flower is the only flower to fruit and flower simultaneously.

  5. Above all the lotus represents spiritual enlightenment.


  1. It was a very beautiful toran :)

  2. And installed thoughtfully at a very prominent place! I saw it in almost all of your Baby Shower pictures too !!
