  1. Intense beautiful colors and details. Purple and red-orange wonderful. why are shakra meditations done with reference to lotus blossoms? Aren’t flowers designed to be beautiful to insects… wouldn’t they know better what a flower is for…

  2. Is it because the lotus symbolises purity, or the union of earth air fire and water? Whatever the reason, it’s a most beautiful flower, and your photo is divine !

  3. not most of gods.. but quite a few.. Symbolically It is also because,, even among the marshiest and swampiest of lakes, a lotus blooms ..
    great capture.. vivid.. nice spotting!
