"Zen teaches nothing; it merely enables us to wake up and become aware. It does not teach, it points." ~D.T. Suzuki

Wake Up

Wake Up

Each morning we are born again.
It is today that matters the most.

Alan Watts Awakening

Bodhi is an abstract noun
formed from the verbal root budh (to awake, become aware, notice, know or understand)
corresponding to the verbs bujjhati (Pāli) 
and bodhati or budhyate (Sanskrit).

Alan Watts Spiritual Awakening
Bodhi (Sanskrit: बोधि; and Pali)
in Buddhism is the understanding
possessed by a Buddha regarding
the true nature of things.
It is traditionally translated into English
with the word enlightenment
and literally means awakened.
(The verbal root "budh" means to awaken.)
