The bamboo: a symbol

The incomparable straightness, the perfection of its dash towards the sky, the vacuum of its internodes symbolize for the Buddhist, even the Taoist, the characters and the goal of its interior step. Its rustle was for the signal of the Illumination. While burning, bamboo emits dry slapping which drive out the bad spirit. Symbol of fertility, bamboo also represents, by its rhizomes, the happy and plain family.
