A Sanskrit word meaning “perfect knowledge” or “wisdom.” It is derived from the root “budh,” (“awaken,” “become aware of,” “understand,” etc.) from which the feminine noun buddhi (“discernment,” “insight,” “understanding,” etc.) and the past participle buddha (“awakened,” “enlightened,”) are derived.
