This photo was taken of a stunning lily pond in a Japanese temple in Kyoto. According to Buddhist legend, the lilies reflect each type of person. Some never rise above the struggles they face in their lives, and thus never have the chance to show their blooms. Others, the very few, do have that inner strength, standing and revealing to all the work their depth and beauty of character. This was one of those that made it from the muddy pond floor to the sunlight above.
