Happy Buddha purnima 2010- Buddha Purnima Greetings and Scraps

The birth anniversary of Lord Buddha is celebrated  by Buddhists across the world as the Buddha Purnima with great enthusiasm . In about 500 B.C. Prince Siddhartha Goutama, was born in the small kingdom of Kapilavastu, now in the Indo-Nepal border. As per Wikipedia total 500 million people across the Glob believe in Budhism. Most of the Budhists live in Asian countries namely India, Nepal, China, Bhutan, Mynmar,  Sri Lanka, Japan and Korea.

Buddha Purnima falls on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Vaisakh (April/May). Lord Buddha was born on the Full Moon day in the month of Vaisakh in 563 BC. It is also pertinent that Buddha achieved enlightenment and Nirvana (salvation) on the same day (the Full Moon day). Thus, Buddha Purnima also marks the death anniversary.

The divine and ethical forces generated by Buddha have strengthened and augmented Hinduism and helped to wean it from perversions which had set in at that time.


Buddha Purnima or Buddha Jayanti is celebrated with traditional spiritual enthusiasm. On this day the followers of Buddha bathe and wear only white clothes. They gather in their Viharas for worship and give alms to Lamas.

On the occasion of Buddha Jayanti, a large fair is held at Sarnath and the relics of the Buddha are taken out for public display in a procession. Besides Sarnath, the Buddha Purnima is also celebrated with spiritual dedication at Gaya and Kushinagar and other parts of India and the world.

In Sri Lanka Budh Purnima is being celebrated like Diwali with paper and bamboo stick lanterns flashing under the night sky.

In Delhi Nearly 800 Buddhist monks and Lamas from Tibet, Nepal and India assemble today to offer special prayers on the occasion of Buddha Purnima
