Flowers & Buddhism Thailand: Importance Of Lotus Flower In Buddhism

Article Category: Culture

Author Name: Gino G. Floirendo

Flowers, to some people, are merely gifts to loved ones during special occasions. They serve as symbols of affection, adornments, or a way to express gratefulness. In Thailand, however, flowers, particularly the Lotus flower, play a very important role in Thai life, aside from using them in cooking and as decorations. Throughout Thailand and China, lotus flower can be found as adornment in temples. An herb that can grow anywhere from three to four and a half feet high and commonly found in ponds, small canals, swamps, and roadside ditches, the Lotus flower has become a symbol of the Buddhist religion. Lotus flowers & Buddhism Thailand are so closely interconnected that in fact, as Buddhism principles put it, a lotus that has not yet blossomed is similar to the heart of a person who has not yet attained enlightenment. Thus, a lotus in bloom signifies complete enlightenment of man.

The lotus is one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. Its place in the religion is signified by its representation in Buddhist holy books, "The Sutra on White Lotus of the Sublime Dharma." Thus, it is one of the most poignant representations of the teachings of the religion. According to the teachings, despite the fact that the lotus grows in muddy water, it is still able to grow a produce a beautiful flower, basking in the sunlight. It is true that other water plants bloom above the water but only the lotus can rise above the surface-tall and strong. The lotus flower also appears across all Buddhist cultures and in all forms of Buddhist art. The lotus flowers in Thailand are widely represented in Buddhist textiles, ceramics, and architecture. In addition, Buddhist deities are always associated in some manner with this flower-whether holding one in their hands or being seated upon it in full bloom.

It is also noteworthy to know that the colors of lotus bear with it various meanings. The realization of spiritual perfection and total mental goodness is the representation of white lotus. The supreme lotus, in pink, is always reserved for the Great Buddha or the highest deity. Compassion is the symbol of red lotus. All the qualities of the heart is what it represents-love, compassion, and passion. Lastly, the blue lotus, a symbolism of wisdom, represents the victory of the spirit over the senses. No matter what color it has, the lotus flowers indeed play an important role in Buddhism and in the life and culture of Thailand. As a symbol of complete enlightenment, a blooming lotus is a guide of every Buddhist and a reminder to each person that the goal is towards the achievement of enlightenment, thus rising above the materialistic nature of man.
