Finding Enlightenment

Today is Bodhi Day, and I am celebrating quietly with a few friends, a small ceremony, and dinner. Bodhi Day is traditionally the day on which Shakyamuni Buddha achieved enlightenment. It's not a very well known holiday, but in the midst of Christmas and Hanukkah, I wanted to be able to celebrate my own faith.

May all beings live in safety. May all beings live in love and compassion.
--Buddhist blessing
