Today strolling in the Osho’s park of Pune (India), I saw just two flowers of lotus. This kind of flowers grows in the muddy water. It is said that Siddhartha Gautama soon after his birth walked and flowers of lotus bloomed under his feet.
In the Osho’s park sometimes there are many lotus flowers. Today I could see only two of them. They are impermanent. They appear and disappear in the same place. Human beings are like those lotus flowers. Our lives don’t last forever as flowers will wither sooner or later. We are meteors which appear in the cosmic void and then disappear again.
Hence, why we should be attached to material goods? Even though they are strong buildings, time will demolish them. As lotus flowers come and go, they will be replaced with other new buildings. Our life is the same. Nothing is permanent. We have to remember it.
