The lotus is a plant that takes root down below,
beneath the surface of water,
in the dark,
in the mud,
and starts growing upwards.
As soon as it raises above the surface,
a lotus flower unfolds under the intense rays of the Sun.
This development depicts the many changes
taking place in a meditative human being.
The mud symbolizes the difficulties one encounters on earth,
the dark water stands for accompanying painful emotions.
But the more a lotus plant grows,
the more it feels the rays of the Sun in the water;
insight increases and the end of the tunnel is in sight.
The unfolding of the flower above water represents
redemption of man from all worries and the
meeting with happiness, love and light.
