Lotus

The lotus is considered one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. The lotus flower arises from the mud and reaches high above the water and blooms radiantly in the sun. This is compared to our soul which have to arise from the dirt of materialism and wade through the waters of experience to reach the state of Enlightenment.

According to a Korean Buddhist book, "The spirit of the best of men is spotless, like the lotus in the muddy water which does not adhere to it.

I like the lotus because my father calls me lotus and because it is just too beautiful!
