      "I grew up in San Diego. My mother died of cancer when I was ten years old. She was a good and loving woman from what I remember, and she encouraged me to read a lot since she was a history teacher. She also had a great interest in eastern philosophy such as Buddhism. When I was born she named me Bodhi from the Buddhist idea of the Bodhisattva – a wise and compassionate being who delays his entrance into buddahood for the benefit of enlightenment for all.” “ She must have seen something very special in you, Bodhi,” said Erica.
