• The significance of the Bodhi Tree

    Bodhi tree is usually translated as Enlightenment Tree. Bodhi or ‘Enlightenment’ here refers to the Path-Fruition Knowledges, Omniscient Knowledge, Nibbana. We can say that Bodhi tree ‘is the tree under which the Buddha gained enlightenment’. Therefore the Bodhi Tree is a remembrance of the Buddha’s enlightenment. It is a symbol of the Enlightenment of the Buddha.
