An Enchanting Water Lily in a Pond

A beautiful waterlily rises from the depths of a murky pond and thick mud. It's lotus petals perfume the air, as it flowers and blooms with brilliant colors of white, pink and purple, conveying a feeling of purity and beauty. In many Asian countries such as India, China, Japan and Taiwan the lotus flower or water lily is a common symbol for Buddhism. The rough idea is that the water and the mud symbolize the worldly and material life and you leave that behind to attain spiritual purity like the beautiful lotus flower.
