Buddha Purnima

MAY LORD BUDDHA BLESS US ALL WITH ETERNAL PEACE AND BLISS

 

Today is Buddha Purnima or Buddha Jayanthi. Buddha means "enlightened one" - someone who is completely free from all faults and mental obstructions. The word Purnima means a full moon day.

 

Buddha Purnima, the biggest religious festival of the Buddhist community, is being celebrated in the country Sunday with due tributes to Lord Buddha.

 

Buddha Purnima marks three significant events that took place in the life of Lord Buddha--his birth, enlightenment and great passing away.

 

Lord Buddha was born in 563 BC, attained enlightenment and nirvana (passing away) on the same day.
