Buddha Purnima is celebrated to commemorate the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. According to Hindu Calendar, it falls on the full moon day in the month of Vaishakha. The day is also called Vaisakh day or Vaisakh Purnima when the main three events occur in Buddha’s life – his birth, enlightenment, and death.
It is on this day, more than 2,500 years ago that a boy was born in Lumbini, Nepal. His birth was to alter human destiny forever. Buddha Purnima celebrates the birth of Gautam Buddha, the man who in his lifetime attained enlightenment and gave the world a whole new way of life, the tenets of Buddhism. He also attained enlightenment and achieved Nirvana on this day, so this day is considered triply auspicious by the Buddhists and Hindus all over the world. Mostly, the countries like Nepal, India, Thailand, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Mongolia, Cambodia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka celebrate Buddha Purnima.
