Thread: Symbol of the lotus flower

Lotus Pose, Padmasana

“It's like growing lotus flowers. You cannot grow lotus flowers on marble. You have to grow them on the mud. Without mud you cannot have lotus flowers. Without suffering, you have no way to learn how to be understanding and compassionate.”
- Thich Nhat Hahn
