仏教の開祖 ゴータマ・ブッダは、菩提樹 (Ficus religiosa、インドボタイジュ)の根元に座って悟りを得たとされる。 菩提樹の名前は、菩提がゴータマ・ブッダの別名であったボーディー (Bhodhi)から来ている。つまり、「菩提樹」は「ゴータマ・ブッダの木」を意味する。英語では bo-tree または bodhi-tree と呼ばれ語源を同じくしている。

Bo-tree is a symbol of Buddha.

The Bodhi Tree or Bo-Tree(Ficus religiosa) was a large and very old Sacred Fig tree (Ficus religiosa)located in Bodh Gaya, India, under which Siddhartha Gautama, the spiritual teacher later known as Gautama Buddha, is said to have achieved enlightenment, or Bodhi. In religious iconography, the Bodhi tree is recognizable by its heart-shaped leaves, which are usually prominently displayed. Bodhi trees are planted in close proximity to every Buddhist monastery.
