Bodhi Leaves

Story SHOW HOPE : The Bodhi-Leave as a symbol of peace. The Latin name is Ficus Religiosa. The blue sky symbolizes enlightenment that is attained under the Bodhi tree, frequently found in Buddhist temples. Buddhism teaches detachment. Detachment from the world around you, premise your own fulfilment within your own consciousness and responsibility.
It has nothing to do with religion as such. Its natural peace.
