“The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.”

Thanks to Sakhi for the photo and hence, the inspiration.

  3. @Sakhi, don’t be silly 🙂 There is such freshness in it, to say nothing of the symbolism…I am glad I got this photo.

  4. Whoa…….such things give me energy somehow!!! do anyone of u ppl feel that too?

  5. Nice pic Sakhi! Nice finds, Swaps – both words and pic and for putting it together for us! Incidentally, I do see one during a morning walk in SGNP and I think how you would capture its beauty if you were along!
