"Lotus" is a 1974 live album by the Latin rock band Santana, recorded at the Osaka Kosei Nenkin Hall, Osaka, Japan in 1973. It was originally released in 1974 as a triple vinyl LP in Japan only. This version of the album was later released internationally. In 2017 a limited edition version was released as "Lotus: Complete Edition". This release is a 3 disc set with seven previously unreleased bonus tracks. This is also a Japan only release.

The unreleased tracks, which had been sealed for 44 years, included in this set, and are finally listed in the original order. These seven are: "Japan," "Bamble," "Ummu Uum," "Sacred Light," "The Creator Has A Master," "Saver," and "Conga Solo" (about 35 minutes total). It uses direct DSD 11.2MHz mastering. Legendary engineer Tomoo Suzuki, who was responsible for recording and mixing of the original work, is responsible for mixing the seven unreleased tracks, using the original master tapes stored in Japan. This is the ultimate version of Santana's classic album Lotus.
