Bula is a great word. I look forward to using it when we arrive in Fiji early tomorrow morning. Here is a definition I found online:
- “It is universally used to say hello, or welcome, and is even exclaimed if you sneeze ! It means ‘life’ and is a way of wishing good health and fortune to the recipient.”
- Bula is heard everywhere in Fiji!
If you don’t know anything else in Fiji, you can’t go wrong with Bula.
It’s hello, welcome, it means “life.” A blessing on the life of the person your speaking too. How cool.
Well, I love this phrase, bula, I love more that when we come into contact with families in Fiji and say ‘bula,’ we can both say it and actually live it out. We are speaking a blessing and then demonstrating the same blessing through the gift of clean water for a lifetime. Very cool.
Bula to you, right now!
More to come.
