The lotus is called padma in both Sanskrit and Tibetan. Rooted in muddy slime, it rises through water to emerge into the sun, a progress that mirrors the journey of man's soul. It is said that our hearts are like the closed petals of a lotus. Imbibing Buddhist virtues will enable the lotus to blossom into its full beauty. This is why the Buddha is often depicted seated on a lotus.
