    Default Ficus religiosa Leave & Cym...

    The Sacred Fig (Ficus religiosa) Leaves..1

    The Sacred Fig (Ficus religiosa) or Bo-Tree (from the Sinhala bo)is a species of banyan fig native to India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, southwest China and Indochina east to Vietnam. It is known by a wide range of local names, such as Bo or pou , bawdi or bawdi nyaung in Burmese, Bodhi (in Thai, though pronounced Po). In Hindi and other Indian languages it is known by various names such as, Pipal (peepal, peepul, pippala, pimpal, etc.), arasa maram or Ashvastha tree.

    The leaves are cordate in shape with a distinctive extended tip. The Bodhi tree and the Sri Maha Bodhi propagated from it are famous specimens of Sacred Fig. This plant is considered sacred by the followers of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism, and hence the name 'Sacred Fig' was given to it. Siddhartha Gautama is referred to have been sitting underneath a Bo-Tree when he was enlightened (Bodhi), or "awakened" (Buddha).

    Thus, the Bo-Tree is well-known symbol for happiness, prosperity, longevity and good luck. Today in India, Hindu sadhus still meditate below this tree, and in Theravada Buddhist Southeast Asia, the tree's massive trunk is often the site of Buddhist and animist shrines.

    Thanks Darren for info on the Bodhi tree. Buddhists hold the Bodhi tree in high esteem and Thevarada Buddhists have a special prayer for the tree when standing in front of one.

    It is quite common to see monks meditating and living in isolation for weeks under the Bodhi trees among the ruins of Ayudhya in Thailand.

    Saplings from the original Bodhi tree where the Buddha achieved enlightenment have been taken to be planted in most of the more prominent temples outside India, particularly in South-east Asia.
