Origins of Bodhi360

What’s in a name...

Bodhi is a Sanskrit word used in Buddhism to describe the understanding possessed by Buddha regarding the true nature of things. It is traditionally translated into English with the word enlightenment and literally means awakened.

The Bodhi Tree (which is represented within our Logo) was a large and very old sacred fig tree under which Siddhartha Gautama, the spiritual teacher later known as Gautama Buddha, is said to have achieved enlightenment, or Bodhi.

The number 360 represents the amount of degrees contained within a circle, and is also a mystical figure that has significance in several world religions and belief systems.

Bodhi360’s company philosophy encapsulates all of the meaning contained within the previous paragraphs; we want to develop and enlighten our students, rather than train by rote and repetition, and we are determined to reach out to and benefit as wide and comprehensive a circle of people as possible.
