Celebrating Buddha Purnima

Every year, Buddha Jayanti is celebrated on the full moon day in the Nepali month of Baishakh marking Buddha's birth, attainment of enlightenment and his death.

Lord Buddha's messages are as relevant today as 25 centuries ago when they were first uttered.

It is significant that celebrating Vesak also means making extra efforts to bring happiness to the less privileged and suffering sections of humankind, such as the aged, the physically challenged and the sick. The day has a special resonance in India, the country where Buddhism was founded.

Buddha Jayanti 2018 has been planned on a grand scale in India.
