Puna Hongwanji plants a new Bodhi Tree
The sangha joined in a joyful, ceremonial planting of a new Bodhi tree on temple property behind the columbarium. One of our members helped get the tree started through a process called air layering and nurtured the young sapling for three years until it was ready to plant.
We continue to enjoy a beautiful, large Bodhi tree adjacent to Puna Hongwanji property. However, its fate is not certain so we decided to plant another tree.
