Plants shrouded in mystery
The lotus - one of the sacred flowers - has a lot in common with water lilies. This is another flower whose existence arouses burning interest among religious fanatics. There is nothing unusual in it. According to one source, this flower comes from North Africa and belongs to the buckthorn family. It has fruits in the form of plums, which were eaten by ancient people.
In India, a lotus was called a waterlily variety. Among the natives, this flower was considered sacred. However, it is considered to this day to this day.
In nature, you can find yellow and pink lotus. Grows currently in southern Europe and in the countries of Central and South Asia.
Buddhists recognized the lotus as a symbol of purity. Despite the fact that this flower sprouts in the swamps, it remains clean and untouchable.
The seeds of this plant are used on the rosary. The flag of Kalmykia (Russian Federation) adorns this ancient flower. The award of India is called the Order of the White Lotus.
Another legend is shrouded in fern. Allegedly, it blooms very rarely and whoever is given the chance to see its color will be happy until the end of its days. This flower is endowed with magical power and fulfills the desires of the one who saw it.
