There are numerous websites explaining the meaning of the lotus plant in Buddhist philosophy. This one lists the meanings that ancient Egyptians, Buddhists, and Hindus attach(ed) to this remarkable plant. I took this photo at Bongseonsa in the fall of 2009 and posted as I returned to my family home, reacquainting myself with a place where time seemingly stands still and reflecting on my experiences over the past three years spent abroad.
