'Enlightenment'

Wonder why the Lotus flower is a Buddhist symbol. There are different suggestions but my favourite is the one about purification. The Lotus flower resembles the purifying of the spirit which is born into murkiness. The tall Lotus flower grows straight out of the mud into something pure and beautiful !
