 Buddhist Studies: Bodhi Tree
In the centuries after the Buddha, the Bodhi tree became a symbol of the Buddha's presence and an object of worship.
King Asoka's daughter, the nun Sanghamitta, took a cutting of the tree to Sri Lanka where it still grows in the island's ancient capital of Anaradapura.
Many temples throughout the Buddhist world have Bodhi trees growing in them which are or are believed to be offspring of the one from Anaradapura and their worship forms an important part of popular Buddhist piety.

  Bodhi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bodhi, the Pāli and Sanskrit word for "awakening" or "enlightenment", is an abstract noun formed from the verbal root budh (awake, become aware, notice, know or understand), corresponding to the verbs bujjhati (Pāli) and bodhati or budhyate (Sanskrit).
Bodhi is most commonly translated into English as enlightenment, though this translation is problematic, since enlightenment (the soul being "lit" by a higher power) is originally a concept from Christian mysticism or conversely evokes notions of the 18th century European Age of Enlightenment that are not identical with the Buddhist concept of Bodhi.
Bodhi is attained only by the accomplishment of the Paramitas (perfections), when the Four Noble Truths are fully grasped, and when all karma has reached cessation.

 Bhikkhu Bodhi
Although Theravada Buddhism explicitly advocates the attainment of arahantship as the ultimate goal, in the course of its historical evolution the Theravada tradition gave birth to a rich body of teachings on the practices of a bodhisatta, an aspirant to Supreme Buddhahood.
Bhikkhu Bodhi here skillfully avoids any discussion of possible motives for the Pope's demeaning treatment of Buddhism, and instead addresses the specific doctrinal points that were raised in the book.
It was the sight of the four "divine messengers" — an old man, a sick man, a corpse, and a wandering ascetic — that propelled the young Bodhisatta from his complacent and luxurious princely life into the homeless life of a serious seeker of spiritual freedom.

 Bodhi
Bodhi is most commonly translated into English as enlightenment, though this translation is problematic, since enlightenment (the soul being "lit" by a higher power) is originally a concept from Christian mysticism or conversely evokes notions of the 18th century European age of rationalism that are not identical with the Buddhist concept of Bodhi.
It is thus preferable to think of Bodhi as spiritual "Awake-ness" or "Awakening", rather than "enlightenment" (although it is true that imagery of light is extraordinarily prevalent in many of the Buddhist scriptures).
Certain Mahayana Buddhist sutras stress that Bodhi is always present and perfect, and simply needs to be "uncovered" or disclosed to purified vision.

 CD Baby: BODHI: Trans Ukraine
While Bodhi’s great flute work is still in ample evidence, TRANS UKRAINE is a ramped up blast of superbly chilled electronica (with traces of world fusion now and then), with the artist marrying his flutes (and some piano) to an impressive array of synths, beats, and electronics.
Bodhi collaborated with two Ukrainians (Igor Gromadskiy on the track “Crimea” and Dimitris Krist on “Kiev” and “Odessa”) who each play keyboards and Englishman Alex Newman served as producer and arranger and did the final keyboard mixing.
"BODHI's Trans Ukraine" CD was the best thing that ever happened to me! With my headphones on, it took me to another place, where I could forget about my illness, be calm, dream, and feel inspired and hopeful that all would be OK soon.
