From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol in Asian traditions. Often used as an example of divine beauty..

One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful action, as the lotus is untouched by water.
—Bhagavad Gita 5.10

I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.
- scholar Zhou Dunyi
