    I haven't heard of it. But here's another example:

    "I had been holding forth eloquently on the
    folly that wastes our powers and chances of
    enjoying life on the unceasing labour of getting
    and spending, getting and spending, a text
    induced, no doubt, by the prospect of to-morrow's
    mechanical routine, contrasted with the Buddha-
    like detachment of these lotus hours."

    It seems to mean a time when one can simply sit and relax. It sounds like a Chinese expression. But that's just a guess from the context.
