Buddha Jayanti is a festival that celebrates the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. It is also known as Vesak or Buddha Purnima and is one of the most important festivals for Buddhists around the world.
The date of Buddha Jayanti varies each year as it is based on the lunar calendar. Generally, it falls on the full moon day of the month of Vesakha, which usually falls in May or June.
On this day, Buddhists celebrate by visiting temples and shrines, offering prayers, and lighting candles and incense. They also participate in charitable acts and engage in meditation and reflection.
Buddha Jayanti is a time for Buddhists to reflect on the teachings of Gautama Buddha, including the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, and to renew their commitment to following the Buddhist path. It is a day to honor the life and teachings of the Buddha and to cultivate compassion, wisdom, and mindfulness.
