In Hindu mythology, the pink-colored lotus blossom is frequently shown as a symbol. Other religions, such as Buddhism and Jainism, use the lotus as a symbol. Brahma, one of Hinduism's three major deities, is always represented as meditating on the lotus flower. According to the Puranas, Brahma was created from the lotus that sprang from Lord Vishnu's navel. Saraswati, the goddess of learning, is also represented as sitting on a lotus flower. In Hindu rites, the lotus flower is also an essential offering.
Lord Ganesha enjoys the lotus flower, hence it is offered to him during Ganesh Chaturthi. It can also be seen in the hands of Hindu deities such as Ganesha, Vishnu, Parvati, and others.
