Find This Huell Howser!

The granddaddy of this tree is the Bodhi tree under which Buddha was said to have attained enlightenment. It was grown from a sapling that came from a tree in the UCLA Bottanical Gardens and that tree was grown from a sapling taken from the famous tree still growing in India today. I took this picture yesterday before our bimonthly book club meeting at Senshin Buddhist Temple. The classroom is in the building to the left. Instead of being situated prominently in the middle of the Temple grounds the tree is in a remote corner of the property which makes a much stronger statement, don't you think?
