Description
The lotus is the world's most iconic flower, a symbol of spiritual awakening and growth for many of the world's major religious disciplines. Inspired by receiving seeds from a 3,000-year-old lotus, which flowered without difficulty in an English summer, Mark Griffiths set out to track the path of this sublime plant to its home in the lotuslands of Japan. Griffiths unveils a vision of Japan's feudal era, visiting shrines, ruins, gardens, and wild landscapes, and meeting priests and anthropologists, gardeners and botanists, poets and artists—and even dines on the lotus in a Tokyo café.
