The lotus

Today I thought we will have just one picture: The Lotus, symbol of Kamalaya wellness retreat.
I feel very fortunate when looking in my flower book to learn that my birthday 16th of July has the symbol of the Lotus flower

The words above are:
Lotuses are ancient symbols of purity
and spontaneous generation.
They represent the unblemished spirit of mankind.
Growing beneath murky waters in mired
surroundings, they develop strong straight stems and
finally emerge from the water surface to sprout
sweet fragrant blossom in the sunlight.
The heart of human beings is like an unopened lotus;
when the virtues of true enlightenment are achieved
therein the lotus blossoms.
