Why Did Buddha Get Enlightened Under The Tree? Ask Deepak Chopra

Buddha sat under the Bodhi tree, which is now known as the Tree of Enlightenment or the Tree of Knowledge, and meditated for a long time. What happened in the time he spent under the tree? Deepak poetically describes what Buddha may have seen and explores what we can learn from this experience – including interdependent co-arising, acausal origin, impermanence, and more.

    The forces of evolution will continue to impact Mother Earth even beyond December 2012. We as mortal beings can help to smoothen the bumpy ride by embracing ourselves with deep reverence for the sanctity of this planet.

    But the ‘shift’ has already started and we will see how December 2012 will unfold itself in the scheme of things.
