The Lotus flower has significance in many cultures and religions. It stands for resilience, persistence, inner strength and humility. In the book I am a Lotus, children learn about everything that a Lotus flower stands for, and how they can try to become a Lotus flower in mind and body by incorporating a few practices in their daily lives.
