Omniscience in a Lotus Field

Imagine a Buddha sitting atop each lotus blossom at Great Meadows!  A closer encounter with these magnificent plants gives a palpable sense of their symbolic importance in Buddhist stories and beliefs.

Potential (bud)

Creative expression (blossom)

Omniscience (ripened pod)
Wisdom (seasoned leaf)
