The Sacred Lotus
(Nelumbo Nucifera) has been revered for thousands of years.
In India and China, Buddhist Monks
considered the lotus flower a symbol of longevity, youthfulness, and eternal life.
In King Tut’s tomb in Egypt, a Lotus blossom chalice was found with the inscription “may you live millions of years.”
The all-powerful Pharaoh would drink from the lotus-shaped cup, hoping to harness its power of eternal life.
Cleopatra also believed in the power of the lotus flower.
Egypt’s Queen was said to have taken lotus baths to preserve her suppleness and seductive beauty.
Why did different cultures, separated by thousands of miles and years, worship the Sacred Lotus Flower as a symbol of longevity and eternal youth?
