The Nelumbo nucifera, known by a number of names including Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus, is a plant in the monotypic family Nelumbonaceae. Louts's have also been referred to as water lilys but these are two very different species. The white lotus symbolised bodhi (Sanskrit for enlightenment). It symbolises a pure body, mind and spirit, along with spiritual perfection and a pacification of one's nature.It is the white lotus that is found at the heart of the Garbhadhatu Mandala, where is serves as the embryo of the world. The white lotus is considered the lotus of the buddhas (but not Buddha himself) because of the above stated symbolism associated with it. Perhaps one of the strongest associations of the lotus flower with religion is that that is observed in Hinduism. In this religion the lotus flower meaning is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality, and eternity. The most common form seen in Hinduism is the white lotus flower.
