â€˜Almost dead, Gautam Buddhaâ€™s Gaya Bodhi tree resurrectedâ€™
Is it possible to grow another tree by using twigs from this tree, perhaps by grafting? Will it not be fantastic if they could grow the same tree all over the country.
It has already been struck down once . . . One of Ashoka's queen, TissarakkhÄ had it killed
and it resurrected afterwards
Bodhi Tree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
my acceptance of the buddha is similar to my acceptance of Gandhi - both were great men - not ""gods" ( by my personal reckoning ) - - as philosophers of indian origin , i would say that it would be superb to do the grafting you suggested - if not " all over the country" then, rather , in places where the buddha might have stayed from time to time or places he visited - plant a newly grafted tree there in memory of his excellency .
i like the "fact" that it "resurrected" ! - i.e. that it wouldnt give up ! - thereby symbolising the spirit of our indian people !
Yeah . . . stands for so much hope doesnt it
I b t w cant quite agree with u placing Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi on same pedestal as Lord Budhdha . .
In terms of time line one is as close as the Moon . . .
and the other is as distant as the Sun . . .
Yet Budhdha outshines MKG just as Sun outshines the Moon ( the world over)
No debating that MKG was a great man neverthless
