477The Lotus and the Sun
- Sep 14, 2006The Yogi should understand two symbols: the lotus, which grows in water
though its petals remain untouched by the water; and the sun, which
shines eternally and equally for all yet remains far above and far
away, unaffected by the changes occurring in the world. These are
symbols of the Yoga of equanimity, which leads one to perfection.
