Buddha Jayanti

Time: 20th May in 2008
Season: Peak Summers

Attractions: The main celebrations are held at Bodh Gaya, Patna in Bihar, which is the birth place of Lord Buddha, where thousands of pilgrims come to attend the Buddha Purnima celebrations.

Buddha Jayanti is celebrated on the eve of the birth anniversary of the Lord Buddha. This is a prominent festival of the followers of Gautam Buddha, and usually falls in the month of Vaisakha (Which according to the Hindu calendar falls in April or May).

Gautam Buddha was born in B.C. 560 and died at the age of eighty in B.C. 480. It was during his time that Buddhism went on to become a very popular religion in the subsequent centuries and even went abroad. It was on Buddha Purnima that Gautam Buddha attained heavenly enlightenment and after preaching the 5 principles of life attained 'Nirvana' on this day. Thus, Buddha Jayanti celebrates the 3 most important things in Gautam Buddha's life. Pilgrims from all over the globe come to Bodh Gaya, India to take part in the Buddha Jayanti celebrations. These are usually marked by holding prayer meets, sermons and religious discourses, recitation of Buddhist scriptures, group meditation sessions, processions and worship of the statue of Lord Buddha.
