Power Of The Lotus
Power Of The Lotus
Description: Growing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center. The Lotus is an Asian Water Lily known for the delicate beauty of its water flowers. The Lotus flower is said to be the only plant to fruit and flower simultaneously. It emerges from the depths of the muddy waters and symbolizes the manifestation of the universal Buddha Nature or Christ Consciousness inherent equally in all life. It also appears in legends ancient Egypt and played an important part in ancient Egyptian Religion. This photo was taken at Echo Park, near Los Angeles, where each year they celebrate the Lotus Festival.
