The â€śLotus Effectâ€ť in biology refers to the plant’s remarkable capacity to grow through the mud while remaining pristine. Micro-analysis reveals the lotus petals have tiny bumps, creating a non-stickquality that repels mud and other debris. In the same way, Mind Whispering creates a field of non-clinging in the mind and a lightness of being, allowing the lotus of wisdom to blossom through the mud of confusion.
