widely in Asia where there are large populations of Buddists. Here are some recommended ways to celebrate:
- String multicolored lights around your home. These lights represent enlightenment.That they are multicolored represents the many pathways all of which are valid. Use for 30 days starting on 8 Dec.
- Light a candle everynight to symbolize enlightenment.
- The Bo tree is the tree under which the Buddha sat. Buy a potted live ficus tree for your home and decorate this tree with lights, strings of beads representing how all things are united, and three shiny bulbs representing the three jewels of Buddhism.
- A breakfast of milk and rice would be a great way to start Bodhi day with mindfulness.
