Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

The lotus flower is the only aquatic plant that blooms out of the water and not resting on the surface as the water lily.

According to legend, Buddha had the ability to walk everywhere, and every time he set foot on the water, lotus flowers bloomed. The lotus grows in the mud to give a flower of exquisite beauty, depicts the Buddha nature from its offshoot to its sublime fragrance.

It is a sacred plant, widely used in Chinese medicine and seeds are delicious.

In Burma, the fibers that are within tunnels in the stem are rolled up to form a yarn that will be woven. A woman prepares about 200 meters wire in one day. Besides beautiful stoles and scarves, sometimes in combination with silk, it is the fabric togas of the monks.

Thank you to Davide Simone for the spotlight!!!
