Happy Bodhi-Day everyone! Namaste! ❤

Educated Adventures

Bodhi Day is actually a Buddhist observance.  It is the day that the Buddha reached enlightenment.  “Bodhi” means  “awakening” and “Buddha” is “the enlightened one”.   “Enlightenment” is the western word for “awakening”.  For Buddhists, meditation is a central component of detaching from this world and trying to really know through personal experience that all things are interconnected and interdependent. That nothing in this world exists independently.   Our family connects deeply to this concept, so we observe Bodhi Day.
