means an enlightened master. It comes from the Sanskrit
root word "Bodhi" which means enlightened,
an awakened person. Someone who has Bodhi is a Buddha,
meaning someone who is enlightened, is an enlightened
master. Why is it called "enlightened"?
When you are enlightened you have light. You have
light inside you, outside you and in the whole universe.
All is your light. Your light is even so great that
it shines outside, that even some people can see the
light around you. Therefor you see Jesus, Buddha or
the great saints all have the light around them, the
halo around them. So this is what it means by being
means a trance, a deep rooted, bliss within yourself.
When you are in the real samadhi it offers you wisdom
and bliss. When you are out of samadhi you'll give
this bliss and wisdom to the world, to whoever needs
you or comes near to you."
