“The lotus symbolizes man’s spiritual growth from the lower to the higher states of consciousness. It starts its growth in the mud (ignorance), grows up through the water in an effort to reach the surface (endeavour and aspiration) and eventually reaches the air and sunlight (illumination).”

– Swami Satyananda Saraswati
