Speaking of the Bodhi Tree

Posted on March 27th, 2009 by

It seems that several members of the philosophy department have had Bodhi Tree sightings….

Deane Curtin has shared two photos of the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya, a Buddhist pilgrimage site that he and students visited during his January, 2009 course Buddhist India. Thanks to Deane for these images.

And Doug Huff reports that he and students saw an offshoot of the original tree at a Buddhist monastery in Bangalore, in southern India.

George and Peg have yet to weigh in on the matter, but we have little doubt that, next time George finds himself in Biddeford, Maine, he will learn that a sprout has been planted there. And chances are good that Peg will see one planted near a tennis court, when she shows up for a tournament one of these days.

Watch this space for more developments!
