The lotus thrives in muddy water habitat, rising and blooming above the murk, in Buddhism this symbolizes enlightenment and purification of the spirit which is born into murkiness. A pink lotus flower represents the history of Buddha and the historical legends of the Buddha.
These pink Thai lotus blooms in clusters of three were resting on lotus leaves placed in water pots, beautifully arranged adorning the water fountain at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Bangkok hotel main lobby. I could not help but notice the beautiful shape, colour tone and delicate petals’ texture of the pinkish blooms every time I walked pass them. Click 🙂
Wishing all a restful and peaceful weekend ahead.
