Buddha Purnima,Birth Anniversary of Lord Buddha

Lord Buddha
Buddha Purnima is celebrated in dedication to Lord Buddha who was the founder of Buddhism. This day is celebrated as birth anniversary of Lord Buddha. According to Hindu calendar, Buddha Purnima falls on the full moon night in the Vaishakha month i.e. in the month of April-May according to Gregorian calendar. On this day, in the high summer heat, people come to Bodh Gaya to attend the celebrations of Buddha Purnima. Celebrations include prayer, lectures on the life of Gautama Buddha, meditation, worship of statue of Buddha and so many other religious things.

Mahabodhi temple is decorated with colorful flags and flowers and festive look is given to this temple. On this day, Buddhists wear only white clothes after taking the holy bath. Then they gather in their viharas for worship and give alms to priests. Some people like to spend their whole day at vihara listening about teachings of Buddha or speeches on life. Some people also invite monks at their home for this purpose.

On this day, Buddhists make kheer which is a special dish made with rice, milk and sugar. They also share it with poor people. Some people also set up stalls to offer clean drinking water to public and also show benevolence to animals.

On this day, people free birds from cages and also distribute clothes and fruits among poor people. Honor is given to Bodhi tree. People decorate this tree with lights, colored flags and garlands. They also sprinkle milk and water in the roots on this tree. Buddhists also reaffirm the five principles of their religion. These five principles are called as Panchsheel and these principles are: not to take life, not to steal, not to lie, not to consume liquor and not to commit adultery.

So, Buddha Purnima is a very religious festival and is celebrated all over India with full devotion.

Rely on the teachings, not on the person
Rely on the meaning, not on the words
Rely on the real life, not on the dreams
Rely on the wisdom, not on the mind inside
Happy Buddha Purnima!


You may gather knowledge and money
and prestige and power, but if have missed love
then you have missed the real door.
Happy Buddha Purnima.
