Lotus flower above the water

While I was walking towards the visitor centre in Botanic Gardens in Singapore, I spotted a solo lotus flower in a pond and took some pictures of it – I have learnt that the lotus is a popular symbol used in Buddhism to symbolise stillness and awakening because the lotus flower is a picture of beauty that blooms above the surface of the muddy pond water. In the same way, when we take time to be still and meditate, we will rise above the chaotic world in our mind and shine in the glory of our true beauty in the stillness of our soul.
