ABC Wednesday - 'B' is for "Bodhi Wishing Tree"





This is a Bodhi tree made of papers and tree branches. It was set up at the entrance of the Shah Alam Buddhist Association. Wishes are written on the card made in the shape of a Bodhi leaf and tied up to branches. Many children from the Sunday School placed their wishes on the tree.

What a lovely idea! The paper leaves are pretty, and full of all those wishes and hopeful thoughts!

what a great idea - I'm going to look for a Bohdi tree near where I live.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
