Lotus might be Chinese’s favorite flower. Buddhists all over the world recognize this Lotus as signifying the holy seat of the Buddha. There’s a famous revolutionary classical Chinese essay where it is written: “I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained”.The lotus has since become a metaphor for honesty and a noble character, symbolic of maintaining one’s purity even if immersed in an atmosphere of filth and corruption. Scholars and poets admire lotus for its cultural connotation, while ordinary people love the plant for a more tangible benefit: the lotus root and seeds are edible, contributing to a variety of delicious dishes in Chinese cuisine.
