Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea)


Nymphaea caerulea, known primarily as blue lotus (or blue Egyptian lotus), but also blue water lily (or blue Egyptian water lily), and sacred blue lily, is a water lily in the genus Nymphaea. Its original habitat may have been along the Nile and other parts of East Africa. It spread more widely in ancient times, including to the Indian subcontinent and Thailand.



Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. Blue Lotus was worshipped as a visionary plant and was a symbol for the origins of life. The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness and then a Blue Lotus sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a young god; a Divine Child. Light streamed from the Divine Child to banish universal darkness. This child god was the Creator, the Sun God, the source of all life. When the Pharao known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Blue Lotus flowers. Ancient Egyptians would also mix Blue Lotus in wine or water and drink the mixture.

Nymphaea Caerulea is also highly respected and by Indians and in Buddhism.
