Boys Selling Lotus Flowers at Wat Phnom

Lotus Sellers

These boys are selling lotus flowers for worshipers to present to different spirits and or gods at Wat Phnom in Phnom Penh Cambodia.  The lotus flower has a rich meaning in the Cambodian Buddhist culture.  It symbolizes purity of the body, speech, and mind as if one is floating above attachment and desire just as the lotus flower floats above muddy water.
