The symbolism of purity and grace . . . Chinese literati believe that a lotus is a pure world unto itself in which both body and soul are clean. According to the book Jian Nan Shi Gao, when the Song dynasty poet Lu Yu was 78 years old, he once dreamt that an ancient spoke to him: "I am the lotus scholar and responsible for the mirror lake," he said. "But now I am leaving, and I was wondering if you could take my place minding the moonlight, wind and dew and protecting the lotuses - Song Dynasty Poet Lu Yu

Nymphaea lotus, the Tiger Lotus, White lotus or Egyptian White Water-lily is a flowering plant of the family Nymphaeaceae. It was introduced into western cultivation in 1802 It is found in ponds, and prefers clear, warm, still and slightly acidic waters. This species of water lily has lily pads which float on the water, and blossoms which rise above the water. It is a perennial, grows to 45 cm in height. The colour of the flower is white and sometimes tinged with pink. Nymphaea lotus is often used as a freshwater aquarium plant. The tiger-like variegations appear under intense illumination. The Egyptian lotus in ancient times, especially in Egypt, was worshiped. He was considered a symbol of creation. In Ancient Greece, it was a symbol of innocence and modesty. The ancient Egyptians also extracted perfume from this flower. The Sacred Lotus Kula Maui Hawaii Copyright 2013 Sharon Mau - All Rights Reserved http://sharon-mau.artistwebsites.com
