Lotus flower

down dog

Over a thousand years ago

Master Kamalashila

taught meditation

on the way of life

of the lotus flower:

It thrives in the filthiest conditions

like the spiritual aspirant

who willingly endures

the most difficult situations

the most challenging relationships

the most dangerous places

as a way of life

for this is how

the lotus flower grows
