About Our Speaker

Dr. Manu Aluli Meyer is the fifth daughter of Emma Aluli and Harry Meyer. The ohana lived beside many cousins on the shores of Mokapu and Kailua. The Aluli-Meyer family is dedicated to justice, education, health, law, transformative economics, arts education, aloha aina, food security, philosophy, and Hawaiian music. She will be speaking on the Dharma of sustainability, Hawaiian culture and the radical potential of the kapu aloha, called forth from within the aloha aina movement on Maunakea.

What is Bodhi Day?

Bodhi Day is the date of the attainment of perfect awakening by Shakyamuni Buddha. In Mahayana Buddhist tradition, it is said that he attained the awakening at the age of 35 under a Bodhi tree on December 8th.
The attainment of his awakening took place about 2500 years ago, and his teachings continue to lead us to the life of true peace and happiness.

This Bodhi Day Service is sponsored by the Hawaii Buddhist Council which represents different Buddhist denominations in Hawaii, and we are very pleased to celebrate with you one of the happiest occasions for all human beings.
