Bodhi Day 2015

Once again it is Bodhi day! What is Bodhi Day you might ask? Bodhi Day is the Buddhist holiday that commemorates the day that the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautauma (Shakyamuni), experienced enlightenment, also known as bodhi in Sanskrit and Pali. According to tradition, Siddhartha had recently forsaken years of extreme ascetic practices and resolved to sit under a peepal tree and simply meditate until he found the root of suffering, and how to liberate oneself from it.

I know it has been a while since I have posted but I wanted to wish all my friends, brothers, sisters and all sentient beings alike a compassionate Bodhi day!

May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness. May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering. May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering. May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close onesĀ and rejection of others.
