LOTUS MEANING

KHAMITS {Egyptians}


Anybody who has taken a look at Khamitic {Egyptian} culture cannot fail to have noticed the significance of the meaning of the Lotus flower in their culture.

In ancient Khamit {Egypt} there were two main types of lotus that grew, the white, and the blue (scientifically a waterlily, but symbolically a lotus). Further to this another type, the pink lotus flower was introduced into Khamit {Egypt} sometime during the late period of their civilization. If one is to observe the many Medu Netcher {hieroglyphics}, it is easy to see that the blue Lotus flower is the most commonly portrayed.

This plant is known to be associated with rebirth. This is a consequence of it supposedly retracting into the water at the night, and emerging a fresh in the Sun the next day. The Khamits {Egyptians} therefore associated the lotus flower with the sun which also disappeared in the night, only to re-emerge in the morning. Therefore the lotus came to symbolize the Sun and the creation. In many Medu Netcher {hieroglyphics} works the lotus is depicted as emerging from Nun (the primordial water) bearing the Sun God.

Another interesting fact about the lotus flower meaning to the Khamits {Egyptians} was the way that it was used as a symbol for the unification of the two Khamitic {Egyptian} kingdoms, that is to say the bonding of upper and lower Egypt. For a long time the lotus had been used in the Medu Netcher {hieroglyphics} and art of upper Egypt, whereas in lower Egypt the Papyrus plant was notably in abundance. Therefore pictures of lotus and Papyrus that had grown up together and become inter-wound with each other came to be a symbol of the bringing together of the two kingdoms
