The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. [Galatians 5:22-23] (photo: White Lotus Flower)
White Lotus (Sanskrit Pundarika) The second meaning of a Lotus flower in Buddhism: it resembles the purifying of the spirit which is born into murkiness.
