The red lotus is the symbol of the heart's original nature. It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart. It is the lotus of Avalokitesvara. (Red Lotus Flower Reflections on Green Background by Bahman Farzad)
The ripples and reflection in the water. "The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud. The thicker and deeper the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms." May you live like the lotus: at ease in muddy water!
