This depicts Guatama the Buddha after awakening enlightened, and wanting to return to Nirvana. But he considered all the lotus flowers in their different stages, working towards enlightenment themselves, and he decided to work with them instead.
So much to do, yet so little time
This weakening body, this tired mind
Wish i can sleep my time away
Woke afresh, may all be empty
How these weeks i wish i could disappear
To a distant land, To a land of smile
To draw strength from her country’s children
To rest in the warm of spiritual sun.
In doing so, may i be rejuvenated
In thought, in strength
May i rekindle love with all man kind
May my body energises
May i be able to fly
