The Lotus and the Rose.
The eastern symbol for the divine is the lotus.
This was so in Asia and Egypt.
The western symbol for the divine is the rose.
When a sage reaches enlightenment he begins to see visions of lotus flowers.
A saint sees visions of roses.
It has been said that flowers exist in both worlds.
The beauty of the lotus and the rose gives us a glimpse of the beauties of heaven.
And these beauties are a product of Love.
