It is the symbol of purity and one of the eight Buddhist precious things. The lotus comes out of the mire but is not itself soiled.
It is inwardly empty yet outwardly upright. It has no branches (no family/offsprings) but yet smells sweet. The words for lotus in Chinese have the same meanings as: to bind, connect (in marriage), one after the other, uninterrupted, to love, and modesty. One of the Eight Budhist Symbols.
