Lotus, is a flower that grows out of the mud of a lake and blooms into a delicate lovely flower above the surface of the water.

Water lilies - my favourite ( well, one of my many :)

I love water lilies, even though I don't know where I can see them. It's weird because they seem to be growing on water because they're floating, but their root is truly on the ground. They must have a long stem, in that case ! The picture is from Hau Siu Fai.

"As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled; so I, born in the world, ... raised in the world, having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world" ~ The Buddha
