A Lotus is a symbol of wonderful strength. From the murky waters below, a lotus rises up showing brilliance, beauty, and inspiration. You can be like a lotus. At rock bottom, you may have been facing challenges, but you will always get up and show how you majestically survive and blossom through it all.
The Heart Sutra can also guide you through life with lessons that are kind and wise. In a few lines it was said that, when you cling onto something, it is emptiness, and when you calm your mind with silence, it speaks of existence.
Remind yourself of these lessons everyday as it is engraved in our Buddhist Prayer Lotus Ring.
