“One who performs his task without attachment, giving the results to the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful behavior, as the lotus is unaffected by water,” the Bhagavad Gita says.

The white lotus flower represents beauty, spirituality, prosperity, and fertility in Hinduism. The Bhagavad Gita advises individuals to live like a lotus: to work without attachment to outcomes, to commit their acts to the Supreme Being, and to be free of immoral thoughts and deeds. The lotus flower, when it emerges from the dirty water to achieve pristine purity, serves as an inspiration to those seeking wisdom and spiritual enlightenment.

The lotus flower is associated with many Hindu gods and goddesses. Brahma, the god of creation, is claimed to have emerged from a lotus that rises from Lord Vishnu’s navel, and Laxmi, the goddess of prosperity, is traditionally represented atop a fully open lotus.
