The Lotus is a symbol of purity and spirituality, especially in buddhist and hindu traditions. Turns out, that’s only just the beginning! The biggest revelation for me, is that you can actually EAT it!
The Lotus is regarded as a holy plant used only for the highest of spiritual purposes, a symbol of purity in Buddhist and Hindu traditions. For meditational purposes, you can place a Lotus or its roots around a statue of Buddha as a prayer for enlightenment. It also represents a communion with the heavens, and thus if you feel you have offended them through poor treatment of yourself, others, or the environment, you can offer a Lotus as a form of acknowledgement of your higher self, and of your actions and karma.
Lotus oil, the essence oil, is also said to decrease carnal urges. A candle anointed with Lotus Oil was also believed to help the deceased elevate their souls.
In modern science, Lotus has been discovered to:
Soothe your Stomach
Lower blood sugar and cholesterol
Get rid of Acne
Ease your period
And kills lung cancer cells.
You can Boil lotus roots for 10 minutes and eat them to receive a healthy dose of nutrients. It is actually a common ingredient in many asian dishes and can be prepared in practically every way.
