What Do Japanese Cherry Blossoms Symbolize?

Answer

The cherry blossom is an extremely fragile blossom that buds for a very small time. For the Japanese this signifies the transience of existence. This concept ties in very deeply with the important wisdoms of Buddhism that express entirely existence is anguish and temporary. The Japanese have long held strong to the Buddhist belief of the transitory nature of life and it is very noble to not get too attached to a particular outcome or not become emotional because it will all pass in time.
