White and Pink Lotus –Nelumbo nucifera, the Sacred Lotus blooming at TPP8a


「出淤泥而不染,濯清漣而不妖」

To  the Chinese, the lotus flower represents creative power and purity amid     adverse surroundings (the muck and mud of the pond). It is also a symbol of     the seventh month and summer when lotus begin their blooming season.

In Buddhism the lotus flower symbolizes faithfulness. The golden lotus     mentioned in Buddhist sutras has two meanings: the symbol for the     achievement of enlightenment, and a real flower which is beyond normal     perception.

Chinese poets also use lotus flowers to inspire people to continue striving     through difficulties and to show their best side to the outside world, no matter how bad the circumstances may be.

    佛經中有「花開見佛性」之說,這裏所說的花是指蓮花。一個人生活在濁世之中,如果他的內心擁有了像蓮花那樣的心境,就是他的心中出現了佛性。蓮花在天國世界中是一種神聖的花,佛教中的蓮花也代表著一種智慧的境界。

  2. For those residents at TPP8a who love photography can grap this opportunity to snap a few shots or just a glimpse at No 2, Jalan PP 2/8
