Saturday Bodhi Puja.

Our teacher, the Blessed one, Arahant, Fully Awakened One, attained his full Enlightenment at the river Neranjara while he was seated meditating under the Bodhi tree (ficus religiosa) which provided him with blissful shade from the sun, helping him to attain victory over the defilements of his mind. Let’s gratefully recollect this wonderful moment.
