Beautiful blooms from a Hindu temple in Houston

I took this photo at a Hindu temple in Houston while on an interfaith tour. It is beautiful because it represents the various stages of growth. First, there are the buds of the flower at the top; however, as you look down the blooms only get larger and larger. We, as people, are buds at first, but, overtime, we bloom into some of the most beautiful flowers.
