THE BODHI TREE


The card represents a great stone statue of the Buddha, seated cross-legged withhis hands in his lap, meditating under a large sacred fig tree (Ficus religiosa).


Buddha is represented while sitting on a gigantic lotus flower, a symbol of purity,enlightenment, and spiritual rebirth.


The Ficus religiosa is a plant from the Moraceae family, indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, common in China and Indochina. It is a semi-evergreen plant whose leaves fall in the dry season. 

 


The tree can grow to up to 30 meters (nearly100 feet) with a thick trunk of up to three meters (about 10feet) in diameter.


The Ficus religiosa is sacred to Buddhists because, according to tradition, Buddha received his illumination at the foot of such a tree.


Seated beneath the tree, Siddhartha Gautama(fifth century BCE) meditated until he reached Nirvana, thus receiving illumination (Bodhi).


A descendent of this tree can be found today in the temple of Mahabodhi, in Bodh Gaya, in the Indian state of Bihar.


No one knows how many success there have been, but they are believed all to have been true heirs to the one whose foliage gave shade to the Buddha.The current tree is a place of pilgrimage, and the temple is one of the most important holy sites of Buddhism



Drawing the Bodhi Tree card indicates that the seeker will soon be given important information regarding the question asked. 

 

You will receive news, probably not unexpected,that will prove to be very beneficial to them.


If the question is about work, for example, it could be news of a candidacy,a particular job position, or a letter accepting an application nor offering a job, or more generally important information for the furthering of their career and professional life.


If the question is on matters of the heart,you should expect to soon receive news about the person they are interested in, or to receive a phone call or message directly from the person in question.


Important information will lead to the discovery of very significant things about yourselves or other people.
