Buddha Purnima

Also called by its other popular name called Vesak, Buddha Purnima is known as Buddha Jayanti or the birth anniversary of Buddha. For the Buddhist community, this is a huge festival that heralds and celebrates the birth, enlightenment and death. This event falls on the full moon day in the month of Vaisakha (April – May). Gautama Buddha was among the highly influential teacher of all times. The topmost teachings of this noble soul were ahimsa (non-violence) and control of desires to attain Nirvana or freedom from all kinds of sufferings both physical and mental.

Celebrating the Buddha’s birth

In the temples of Buddha, there are sermons given on this holy day which the Buddhists attend with a great enthusiasm and dedication. In some temples, it is possible to see a small image of Buddha depicted as a baby signifying his birthday. The baby Buddha’s image is usually placed in a vessel filled with water and is decorated with fragrant flowers. People visiting the temple pour water on the statue to symbolize a new beginning in their lives.

Other activities on this day

On the day of Vesak, the Buddhists wear white clothes and abstain from any kind of prohibited activities. They involve in reading the books of Buddha and listening to the sermons on religious themes. They take active interest in giving away charities and help the poor, needy and the old people. Caged animals and birds are set free on this day as a mark of caring for all lives in the light of the Buddha’s teachings.
