About 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.
The Hawaii Buddhist Council consists of seven Buddhist denominations: Higashi Hongwanji, Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii, Jodo Mission of Hawaii, Koyasan Shingon Mission, Nichiren Mission, Soto Mission, and Tendai Mission.
