Sacred lotus flower: Kencho-ji

Sacred lotus flower: Kencho-ji

Without being discouraged by the shortage of sunshine due to the inordinately long spell of rainy weather in this summer, lotus flowers are beginning to bloom nobly with all their might this year too. 

For a plant, its flowering and pollination must be the most important rituals of life, for which it must have spent the whole year to prepare diligently.

The life span of a lotus flower is about only four days, and once the pollination is completed, its silky petals silently fall off in rapid succession without any hesitation.

The noble beauty of this snowy flower makes me sense the innermost delight of this plant which was able to accomplish its blooming finally.
