Buddhists believe that on the night of May's full moon the Buddha sat beneath a spreading fig tree and entered a state of deep concentration
In his consciousness in its greatest depths, he saw the difficulty of change, based on instinct responses, such as craving and ill will, that shaped his mind and sowed the seeds of future suffering
Later something had changed and he saw a new vision of existence opened as if he was asleep and just woken
