In Buddhism the Lotus flower is known to symbolize purity of speech, of the body, and of the mind. A person’s path in life is said to be similar to that of the Lotus. Starting at the seed stage, early in the karmic cycle, through to the bud emerging from the dirty water, representing a person following the path of spirituality and leaving attachment behind, and finally blossoming, this is when a person has become fully awakened and has achieved nirvana.
"Đó là sự khác biệt giữa chúng ta. Em ngưỡng mộ những người đạt đến đỉnh cao danh vọng, tiền tài và cố gắng mọi cách để đạt được những điều đó. Anh chỉ ngưỡng mộ những người dám từ bỏ bản ngã của chính mình, dám hy sinh lợi ích của bản thân vì những người khác."

Who is in the house of my heart, I asked. Love said, It is I, but what are all these images in your house? I said, The reflection of your beautiful face. Love replied, But what of this image full of pain. I show Love my soul full of wounds. Love gave me a thread saying Take it but do not break it. Reaching for the string, Love struck my hand. Why? I asked. Love replied To remind you that whoever comes to Love’s space, will be sent away. Look at Love with the eyes of your heart. Rumi
Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don't know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever... I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. ~Jack Kerouac
