It begins in the most dark, murky and dirty depths of the water and grows, ever upward toward the light, to the surface of the water, where it floats and blooms. In Hinduism, Brahma is said to have been born from a lotus blossom that grew from the navel of Vishnu. In Buddhism, the Lotus flower is a symbol of purity and enlightenment.
