Bright Pink

Pink lotus flowers are associated with Buddhism & Hinduism.

“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But, it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first, you must have the mud – the obstacles of life and its suffering…” Goldie Hawn

Buddhists believe that the plant symbolizes perseverance and purification after experiencing human suffering.

In Buddhism, it represents coming out of suffering, patience and self-awareness.

In Hinduism, it represents beauty, prosperity and fertility.

“Great people will always be mocked by those who feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower. Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.”
Suzy Kassem
