Heart in Nature: Pipal Leaf

Earlier this week, I posted about the practice of painting Pipal leaves. Pipal trees have a special place in history. It was under a pipal tree that Siddhartha Gautama obtained enlightenment. Thereafter he was known as…Buddha.

    I just finished reading the book Enlightenment for Idiots (a fiction novel more about drama than Buddha), but in which the pipal tree is described and frequented… it’s awesome that you found this picture and included it in your Hearts of Nature!!… my stumbling upon this post was meant to be! haha
