The Lotus Flower, a sacred flower



The sacred Lotus Flower represents one symbol of the fortune of the Buddhist believe and is in it’s spiritual qualities a potent symbol that grows strong and beautiful from the murkiest depths.  It resembles the purifying of the spirit , it grows in muddy water and in this environment


that gives forth the flowers first and most literal meanings rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.


The Lotus Flower is not to be mistaken with the Water Lily



Lotus Flowers bear fruits, which are used in Asian cooking,  and seeds, but don’t come in that many colors


A closed Lotus Flower represents the time before a Buddhist follower found Buddha or enlightenment



The real spiritual meaning of the Lotus Flower is, that it represents rebirth. This could appear in so many ways, might be a change of ideas or acceptance of changes in life or seeking for The Truth


The fully bloomed and open Lotus Flower symbolizes full enlightenment and self-awareness



This sacred Lotus Flower could live for a thousand years.


The white colored Lotus Flower is the most purest.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site
