On Bodhi Day
Siddhartha becomes Buddha
Teacher of Dharma
Bodhi Day is the day that the Buddha reached enlightenment. This occurred over 2500 years ago and is celebrated on the eighth day of the 12th lunar month, December 8th. On this day Buddhists commemorate this day by meditation, studying the Dharma, chanting sutras (Buddhist texts) and performing kind acts towards other beings. Some celebrate by a traditional meal of tea, cakes and readings.
I personally will be fasting on this day and spending time meditating.
