What is Bodhi Day?

Bodhi Day

According to tradition, Bodhi Day honors the day when enlightenment was reached by Siddhartha Gautama, Shakyamuni or the historical Buddha by finding the roots of suffering after sitting under a giant Pipal tree to practice meditation. Siddhartha became a Buddha or "enlightened" when he received enlightenment. In the end, he found the answers he needed and reached the state of Nirvana.
