A gift from the teacher trainees. My gift was a little different which ended up being uniquely perfect.
I was told they didnt get 3 exact matching gifts because there was only 2 matching; which went to Marsha and Kathy🙏🏻 But in a way my unique gift was fitting more than I believe they intended. The Bodhi Leaf om. "The Buddha achieved awakening under the shelter of a sacred fig tree known as the bodhi tree. Since then, the bodhi tree has become a symbol of the Buddha’s enlightenment, and the heart-shaped leaf a symbol of the potential that lies within each of us to awaken.
The bodhi tree symbolism was associated with Vishnu, a major archetypal Hindu god. Vishnu is the sustainer of the universe and part of the holy trinity with Brahma and Shiva completing the divine triad.
Early Indian also depicts the god Vishnu seated among Buddhi Leaves, seemingly looking out into the universe with infinite wisdom and energy. As such, the symbol has also been used to bring good, bright energy, spiritual vision and lively thoughtfulness.
The Buddhi Leaf is also considered a sacred symbol for diligence and as a reminder and inspiration that indicate the paths to enlightenment." 🕉
