Lotus Flowers send the cylindrical stalks of both the leaves and flowers from the muddy bottom of the water high into the air. The flowers and the leaves all appeared to be reaching for the sun. The flowers closed in the late afternoon.During the night, the flower closes and sinks, like a cleansing, and then emerges with the light, a renewal. (Never give up, when things are difficult in life, next day again re-emerge to touch the sky (buddhahood), keep practicing mystic law every time-never give up for enlightenment that gives only happiness to you and others- the extreme state of wisdom and compassion. Hollow stems, but tough outside and flexible stem symbolizes our resilience and compassion towards negative forces).

In fall, the Lotus leaves wither, the seeds within the pods ripen and eventually bend down to release the seeds. During winter, the plant sleeps beneath the water’s surface with dormant roots. The Lotus seeds can survive an incredibly long time in a dried-up body of water and have germinated and grown into plants after more than a thousand years of dormancy. (All life forms are like Lotus flower in the winter, need a warmth from the Nichiren Diashonin’s Buddhism. Even while going to dormant phase of life cycle, human should spread seeds of its’ importance of Buddhism).

According to a traditional story, the more muddy and opaque the water, the more beautiful the Lotus flower when it emerges. (More is the worst life conditions you have, more beautifully you will attain buddhahood, if you follow Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, like Lotus flower).

Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo !!! (background-Chanting)

I’m a Lotus Flower.
Do not Pray or Chant, Just because You are Told to Do so,
Understand Nobility Nature First.
Discover Wisdom at both the Intellectual & Experiential Level
With Wisdom, Naturally Compassion Emanates Profoundly from Heart.
Like the way, While Lotus Blooms &
Spreads its Sweetest Subtle Scent to its Surrounding.
Be & Act, Like a Lotus Flower in Every Moment of this Apparent Life.

My Dormant Lotus Flower Nature, Buddhahood,
Has lived, Wandered Everywhere in the Deepest Darkness for Countless Kalpas.
In Each Kalpas, Yet I Couldn’t Find Even a Tint of Light.
Still Living under Futile Defilement, Murky Watery underneath Ecosystem.
Nothing Is As Painful As Staying Stuck Somewhere You Don’t Belong.
So, My Lotus Nature is Still Seeking for Some Sign
of Sunshine in this Absolute Darkness. In my Core, I’m a Lotus Flower. I Know.

In my Heart, I know, There’s a Place Somewhere Full of Light & Happiness.
Sun !! I heard You shed Light in Whole Universe. Who are You? Where are You?
What is Your True Nature? Please, Just Shed a Glimpse of Light on Me.
Just Show me the Truth Path, where to Emerge onto.
I will chisel the Darkness, Haze & Rise towards You.
Like the way, Discovering a Light,
the Lotus chisel through the Hazy Pool to Reach out Towards the Shining Light.
Because I’m a Lotus Flower. I Know.

Today, Truly understanding Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo !
I Found the Lion’s Mighty Roar in Me, which gave me Courage
to Confront Any Challenges with Noble Calm Composure.
So, I Thank you to Thunderstorms, Huge Ocean Waves Assailing the Little Boat
of my Life, Coz of You, I’ve found a Tranquil Seashore;
A Rich, but Destitute Vagabond has found an Eternal Home.
Now, My Deepest Compassion will always be Permeating Everywhere in my Presence
Coz I’ve Found its Root causes; Found a True Buddha here in Me.

Today, My Eyes, Full of Tears have Washed away
All my Expedient Darkness & Provisional, Delusional Prejudices.
Like the way, With Faith in Light, Succumbed Lotus Flower Emerges
Washing Itself on Pond & Discovers Free, Fresh & Open Air.

Practicing the Middle Way, Gained True Insight of the Glistening Noble-path.
Perceived the Core of the “Truth as It Is”, Encountered the  “True” Dhamma.
Yesterday is cleansed into Purity Today. Tomorrow will be More Purer.
Now, I’m Escalating from the Lower Worlds to the Pinnacle.
I will Resurrect Myself in the Same Direction, Every Time if I Fall.
Learn to Live this Life Wonderfully: Either in Sorrow or in Happiness.

My utmost thank you to all those
Known, unknown-All universal Forces, For Coming to my Life,
in Different Colors, Shapes, Sizes & Forms as A Guiding Star today.
Like the way, Warm Sun shows up to help Bloom the Potential Lotus Flower.

Now, I See many Other Dormant Lotus Flowers
Perplexed & Wandering in the Murky Pool, Seeking to Bloom.
With a Full Wisdom proliferated within me, Saintly & Diligently,
I Determined to Radiate my Brilliant Virtuous Compassion.
Like the Morning Sun come to Awaken the Lotus flower,
To Awaken those Sleeping Sentient Buddhas. Like I was in the Same Water Pool.
Now, I can See, We are All Lotus Flower. We are all The Lotus Flower.
I’m a Lotus Flower.
