Lotus Flower

 

From the muddy bottoms of a pond, the lotus flower rises each day to bloom again, fresh and clean. It has been used to symbolize a person’s path to enlightenment, for like the lotus, we are all first born into this life in karmic mud. Through reincarnation, Buddhists believe that eventually the human spirit will rise like the lotus to float above the muddied waters of attachment and desire.  Bring beauty and purity of speech, body and mind into your life with the lessons of the lotus.
