Bodhi tree - 4 x 8 by ~TheGreatGod

…as the Buddha attained Enlightenment under The Bodhi Three

through the The Four Watches of the Night


The First Watch:

The recollection of his human past lives, and knowledge of the cycle of death and rebirth

The Second Watch:

The recognition that the cycle of rebirth affects all sentient beings in all worlds, and that the law of karma determines the quality and type of rebirth, and its suffering

The Third Watch:

The recognition of the cycle of causality that leads to death and rebirth, and the means of liberation from this cycle

The Fourth Watch:

The recognition of the state of enlightenment, and the great Awakening of the Buddha
