What do lotus blossoms signify?

The lotus blossoms grow out of, but not independent of the mire.  We should never distant ourselves from the sufferings and ignore the world in the name of practice.  Just as lotus blossoms grow in the heat of the summer, we need to turn the bothersome troubles and defilement of our lives into opportunities to further our practice and cultivation.  It also signifies the purity of our inner Buddha nature and righteousness as the blossoms come out from the dirty mud and do not branch out.
