Natchez, Mississippi

i visited the fountain again. someone had thrown these daffodils into the water and it made me think of this Sanskrit verse.

The Eight Flowers of Offering

Eightfold are the flowers pleasing the Lord,
Nonviolence first,
Control over the Senses next,
Compassion on all Creatures,
then especial is Forbearance, Peace,
Next Meditation, again Penance,
and Truth above all,
Eight-fold are the flowers pleasing the Lord.
