The Magic Mallard

In a dilapidated pool on a summer day Frog, an avid yoga practitioner, whispers to the tiny Magic Mallard suddenly discovered sitting in a flower opening out of her groin.

"I love you, my precious!"

"Despite our weathered bath my heart is ever-young and beautiful!"

"Om mani padme hum."

on the efficacy of the om mani padme hum mantra (six syllable formula of Avalokiteshvara) in popular Buddhist practice, i can only say "khrom la ma ni bskul ba'i thabs".

The Jewel in the Lotus? :) No, really. Give us a hint! Does it have something to do with cherishing the heart of things rather than the external?

Well, I certainly have a good idea what some of my Freud-loving friends in graduate school would think about flowers growing out of somebody's groin...but, I've always found that kind of thinking rather limiting. Personally, I like the images here, but, apart from the "jewel in the lotus" mentioned by a previous commenter, can't say much about it...
