Bamboo has roots deep in the earth which allow it to stand tall and strong.
Bamboo gains strength from its flexibility; it never fights the wind but sways with it.
Bamboo is continually growing.
Bamboo expresses its usefulness through simplicity: while it can be processed in various ways, it is ready
for use as it is.
What looks weak is strong: although bamboo does not grow thick trunks, it can endure extreme heat
and cold, and is frequently the only plant left standing after an extreme storm.
Bamboo contains emptiness, symbolizing the core of wisdom.
