did our bright dawn Bodhi leaf logo come about?
Cary Okano, while traveling in India, had an inspiration for our logo. She used a leaf shape based on an actual leaf from a descendant of the original Bodhi tree that Siddartha Gautama sat under when he realized Enlightenment over 2,500 years ago. Cary then added the rays of a dawning sun in the middle of the leaf shape. The color yellow was chosen because it can represent the sunrise and also was the color of Gautama Buddha's followers' robes during his time.
are the meanings of the Bodhi leaf and bright dawn themes in our logo?
