December 8th: Bodhi Day



December 8th, marks the Buddhist Holiday of Bodhi Day. Bodhi Day is an observance of Siddhartha Gautama's awakening under the Bodhi Tree. Interestingly, the day also marks the anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death(30 years). It strikes me as rather ironic that such a visionary, radical, compassionate man was taken so abruptly on this important day. In his own way, i guess Lennon may have achieved a form of enlightenment on this day also. Take a moment and get in touch with that quiet peace within.

This images is an ode to sitting meditation. The gulls here seem to have the right. idea
