lesson from the lotus flower...


"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"

Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.
