WHAT DOES ‘BODHI’ MEAN ANYWAY?

lord_buddha_under_the_bodhi_tree_jtn86

Bodhi is both a Pali and a Sanskrit word meaning awakened, formed from the root word budh (to awake, become aware, notice, know or understand).

“Those who have attained enlightenment lose all sense of fear and worry. They’re no longer bothered by mundane matters and see the incredible potential available in each moment. They understand the way life works and the design of the infinite field that orchestrates the flow of energy, information and the countless intricate processes unfolding in every second. Recognizing that they’re an inseparable part of spirit or God, enlightened beings are lighthearted and joyful.” – Deepak Chopra
