THE DAY OF Account. December 8, 596 BC Buddha attained reason under the Bodhi tree. "Photograph shows modern Gautama Buddha now under the Bodhi tree."
It is alleged that on the first light of his reason he looked up and saw the first light star (Venus) and cried in wonder:
That's it! That's it! That's it. That's me! That's me that's baking so brilliantly! How wondrous, how wondrous! All beings are endowed with this basic nature! To the same degree a wondrous, unanticipated thing has been realized! All the ten thousand clothes, all the plants, all the foliage, all the rocks, all clothes everywhere are baking brilliantly!
For Buddhists today is a day of bereavement and meditation. It is a token that with right conflict and understanding character can become modern. Zen Buddhists begin an determined "sesshin" (meditation practice) on December 1 which, lasts until produce the 8th. They normally prevent up all night in meditation to bring in "Rohatsu" (the first light of Buddha's execution). Colored lights symbolizing the many pathways to reason are strung and turned on each twilight and candles glorification the path of reason are lit for 30 days. Fiscus foliage ("ficus religiousa") are bejeweled with dyed lights, stings of beads symbolizing the unity and shining trinkets intended for the Three Ornaments (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). Offspring make cookies in the carve of a tree (Bodhi tree) or a general feeling created branch.
