To know the precise answer to this question we must know the seven basic forces that are associated with the seven basic Hindu gods. The seven basic forces and the Hindu gods associated with them: They are, 1. Dreaming force - Indra 2. Illusory force - Shakti 3. Voluntary force - Brahma … 4. Semi voluntary force - Vishnu 5. Involuntary force - Shiva 6. Status altering force - Shani 7. Compulsive force - Yama Originally, Brahma represented the Voluntary force. However, since this would enable us to lead a bad parallel life, totally independent of our life, later Brahma was associated with the voluntary component of the Semi voluntary force. Gods associated with lotus: It should immediately be obvious that the lotus flower is associated with the Trimurti, their consorts and their children. It is not associated with the gods associated with the other forces. Symbolism of basic elements of nature: 1. Air - Voluntary force - Brahma 2. Water - Semi voluntary force - Vishnu 3. Land - Involuntary force - Shiva This association is due to the fact that voluntary activities are unstable, Semi voluntary actions are flexible and Involuntary actions are rigid. The lotus flower comes out of water and stays above it. In the same way the voluntary component of the semi voluntary force enables us to execute an action independent of our status. The lotus from Vishnu's navel: The Semi voluntary Vishnu force corresponds to our abdomen and the level of our navel to its voluntary component. It is for this reason that Brahma is supposed to originate from the navel of Vishnu. The correctness of actions: 1. Voluntary actions are correct by themselves. 2. Semi voluntary actions are correct because 50% of activities of our life favor them 50% of activities of our life oppose them 3. Involuntary action is correct because it is favored by most activities of our life. Thus, Semi voluntary and Involuntary actions are not correct by themselves and also they are dependent on our status. Symbolism of lotus: The lotus is symbolic of the activity that is correct by itself and is independent of our status. This feature is very important when we want to interact with people of all classes. The god to be associated with lotus: Executing an action correctly independent of our status is a unique feature of Brahma. Thus, only Brahma and Saraswati should be associated with lotus. Vishnu and Shiva don't have this feature and can't be associated with the lotus. Vishnu, Shiva and the lotus: Since Brahma is a god that is worshiped rarely, this very important feature of Brahma is added to Vishnu and Shiva, their consorts and children and thus they either sit on lotus or hold them in their hands. Gods not associated with lotus: The peripheral four basic gods Indra, Shakti, Shani and Yama are not associated with lotus because they should not be used willfully and their use should be unintentional and a last resort. Therefore, the lotus flower is symbolic of the activity that is independent of our status and correct by itself. (MORE)

Why the Egyptian Lotus Flower is Important to the Ancient Egyptians. The lotus flower appeared in legends originating from ancient Egypt. It played an important part in ancient Egyptian religion. The pure white lotus flower, the only plant to fruit and flower simultaneously, emerges from the depths… of the muddy swamp. Growing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center.. It is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth. Because at night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. According to one creation myth it was a giant lotus which first rose out of the watery chaos at the beginning of time. From this giant lotus the sun itself rose on the first day. A symbol of Upper Egypt .The lotus flower played a prominent role in the version of the creation story that originated in Heliopolis. Before the universe came into being, there was an infinite ocean of inert water which constituted the primeval being named Nun. Out of Nun emerged a lotus flower, together with a single mound of dry land. The lotus blossoms opened, and out stepped the self-created sun god, Atum, as a child. A slightly different version of the creation story originated in Hermopolis. In that version, the sun god who formed himself from the chaos of Nun emerged from the lotus petals as Ra. The lotus is a flower which opens and closes each day. His history went on to say that the petals of the lotus blossom enfolded him when he returned to it each night..

The lotus flower symbolizes LIFE or SOUL. I got a tattoo about half an hour ago saying "De La Soul" in fancy writing, a famous hip-hop group from the 70's...they also happen to be one of my favourites, De la Soul means "of the soul", the lotus flower means life/soul, next week I'm going to be get…ting a lotus flower added too as the lotus is a connection to the word soul, i thought this is the perfect tat for me. (Correction from Matthew Glosser: The author of the answer above states that De La Soul is a famous hip-hop group from the 1970's. This is incorrect- De La Soul is a hip-hop group from the early 90's. Their first album wasnt released until 1989. The author claims De La Soul is one of their favorite musical acts, so much so that he or she got the group tattooed on his or her body, yet the author does not know even the most basic information about the group. There is a huge difference between a music group from the 70's and a music group from the 90's. Also, regarding the lotus flower: It has come to symbolize many things in eastern culture. Purity is the most common of these symbols as ancient eastern spiritual leaders and philosphers were impressed by its abillity to grow from the mud, unstained or from the water, untouched. The lotus is also a symbol of non-attachment, a pillar of the Buddhist philosophy. Despite the author's claim that the lotus flower "means life/soul", these are not common symbols attributed to the lotus flower.) (MORE)
