buddha purnima [01:12]
Buddha Purnima Month: May Celebrated on: Full Moon of the Baisakh month Reason of Celebration: To commemorate birth, attainment of knowledge, and the death of Lord Buddha Significance: Thrice-blessed day for the Buddhists Special Events : Fair at Lumbini, Nepal the birth place of Lord Buddha ................. Buddha Jayanti or Buddha Purnima is marked as the most important day, commemorating the three most significant events in the life of Gautama Buddha that occurred on the same day. His birth, enlightenment and death (nirvana), all happened in the month of Baisakh, on a full moon night in April/May. Thus, this makes the day - called Buddha Purnima Festival or Buddha Jayanti Festival- all the more sacred for Buddhists. Buddhism went on to become a very popular religion in the subsequent centuries and even went abroad. It was on Buddha Poornima that he attained enlightenment and ultimately after preaching the five principles of life and the path of eight-fold truth for long, he attained 'Nirvana' or left the mortal world on this day itself. Thus, Buddha Jayanti celebrates the three most important events in Gautam Buddha's life. Pilgrims from all over the world come to Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha in Nepal.
