Thich Nhat Hanh: No mud, no lotus.
Thich Nhat Hanh
And no rain, no mud.
It feels like I'm slogging through a lot of mud just now--and there's no end in sight.May my path be furrows; let the flowers come in spring.
The lotus pictured is by Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo, one of the only westerners trained in the rare Buddhist art of silk applique thangkas.
