Mindfulness Journal – No Mud No Lotus


The journal cover is made from serene green linen fabric with hand sewn lotus patch and hand stamped words that reads “No Mud No Lotus”. The back of the journal is covered in denim. It is handbound using coptic binding with linen thread which allows the diary to lay flat when opened. Filled with 144 blank, unlined pages of 135gsm natural white eco friendly recycled paper. Chlorine free. Cardstock paper on the inside cover pages. 21cm x 15cm (8.2″ x 6″) or approximately A5 size. Black eleastic page marker. Arrives gift wrapped. Handmade in New Zealand.

The saying “No Mud No Lotus” by Thich Nhat Hanh is explained with the understanding that without hardship (the mud) in life we cannot truly understand happiness (the lotus), hence we should not discriminate the mud or hardship. Instead we have to learn how to embrace hardship with tenderness and compassion.
