Buddhist Holiday: December 8th Bodhi Day
The original Buddha, prince Siddartha Gautama left his home & family in search of the truth of life but after 6 years & considerable suffering hadn't found it. So he sat under a Bodhi Tree & vowed not to move until he found truth. He sat & fasted under the Bodhi Tree for 8 days & on the 8th day, found enlightenment which was to become the principles of modern Buddhism - The Four Noble Truths. ~ 596 BC

Buddhist Buddhism Prayer Wheel

There are thought to be anywhere from 230 million - 500 million Buddihists worldwide. A core belief In Buddhism, is that enlightenment (bodhi) is awakening from one's delusions, especially the delusions of the ego and of a separate self.
Both a religion and a philosophy, Buddism teaches that suffering ceases when desires cease and from this place one can become awakened/enlightened. The Buddha's first sermon after his Enlightenment centered on the Four Noble Truths, which are the foundation of Buddhism. The truths are:
1. The truth of suffering (dukkha)
2. The truth of the cause of suffering (samudaya)
3. The truth of the end of suffering (nirhodha)
4. The truth of the path that frees us from suffering (magga)
Practice towards enlightenment includes meditation & chanting sometimes done with the aid of prayer wheels.

Buddhist Mealtime Prayer

This food is the gift of the whole universe,
Each morsel is a sacrifice of life,
May I be worthy to receive it.
May the energy in this food,
Give me the strength,
To transform my unwholesome qualities
into wholesome ones. 

I am grateful for this food,
May I realize the Path of Awakening,
For the sake of all beings.
Namo Amida Buddha.

Animated Mani Wheel

Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum, invites the blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Om Mani
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has said that having the mantra on your computer works the same as a traditional Mani wheel. As the digital image spins around on your hard drive, it sends the peaceful prayer of compassion to all directions and purifies the area. 

Animated Mani WheelAnimated images like this one are digital Mani wheels which can be placed on Web pages ~ like here! Similar animated graphics can be used for Mani-wheel screen savers. The link is below:
