I posted this photograph in some Facebook groups and received a positive response.


Subhash Sharma "The meaning of this beautiful looking water Lily (or Lotus) flower is symbolic of rebirth, but in addition to its religious meaning, the lily is also a symbol of all that is true, good and beautiful, representing good fortune, peace and enlightenment.Water lilies are often portrayed in Chinese and Japanese art and traditional woodblock prints. Indian art and carving also, has the lily flower as a prominent reoccurring design motif. Lotus flowers have strong symbolic ties to many Asian religions especially in India. Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs.
