The lotus is a central symbol in Buddhist thought. Its archetypal underpinnings, filled with complex meaning, point towards the inner experience of the Self as C.G. Jung understood it within this 2500 year old spiritual tradition.  In this presentation, Master Dingkong will explore the symbol of the lotus, and will include a discussion of this image as it occurs of modern Chinese Buddhist practitioners.
