Bodhi, a stolen name?

Postby Rob-hin » Wed Oct 03, 2001 9:16 am

Yesterday I was watching a movie with the guy from "the Matrix" (how is it that whenever I need a name I can't remember it :rolleyes: ).
And there was a guy who was named Bodhi, coninsedince or not??

The movie was about matrixguy beeing a cop who needed to find a guy (or something like that) and somehow ending up with opening there parachoutes as late as possible as a form of adrenalinerush.

The movie is Pointbreak and Bodhi is Patrick Swayze.
Bodhi is short for Bodhistatva or something. A Buddhist monk of some sort.

A Bodhisattva is a spiritual guide - there is a Steely Dan song called Bodhisattva - very rockin.

I think there was also a spiritual leader name Bodhidharma.

I think the character in Point Break is sort of modeled on this concept of being aware, spiritual etc, even though he is the villain. Bodhi in Baldur's Gate doesn't really seem that way, though, so I think the name is sort of inappropriate.
May you walk on warrrrm sannd....

Couldn't Bodhi simply mean "monk"? I believe BG's Bodhi is a Monk multi... though don't ask me how she did it!

After all, there is only 5 signs, and some rules about sounding would cut off most of possible combinations :rolleyes:
