I was at the Nandaka Vihara yesterday morning and one of the first things I noticed was this very spectacular lotus flower in full bloom at their lotus pond.
What was interesting about this lotus pond was that it was covered with a wire mesh to prevent the fishes from jumping out of the pond. The lotus plants were all matured and there were two or three blooms trapped beneath the mesh. However, there was this one singular flower that the temple coordinators had set free, allowing it to bloom above the mesh. This was the lotus flower that had caught my eye. This was the lotus flower that I'd like to share with everyone.
