Buddha’s Birthday (also known as Buddha Jayanti, also known as his day of enlightenment – Buddha Purnima, Swaya Punhi) is a Buddhist celebration honoring the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama (Shakyamuni ), subsequently the Gautama Buddha, who was the founder of Buddhism, in most of East Asia and South Asia.

Lord Buddha’s real name is Siddhartha Gautama, and it is stated that when he was born, he took 7 (Seven) steps north and pointed his finger towards the wind. He is regarded as the great soul and the last incarnation of God on Earth, according to this. Siddhartha Kunda is the name of the pool where Siddhartha Gautam washed after his mother died tragically after Buddha‘s birth. Siddhartha Gautam, a highly disciplined and dignified prince, married Yashodhara when he was 16 years old. Siddhartha Gautama, who had a propensity of exhibiting deep affection to all living beings and things, left all comforts and started out in search of knowledge and causes when he was 29 years old.

This prince sought wisdom to ease the sorrow and suffering of human life, and the Buddhist manifest is the result of his penance years later. Siddhartha Gautama witnessed the sick, the injured, the greedy, and those who became monks by surrendering everything to others while on the journey to enlightenment.

Lord Gautama Buddha in the world today is Siddhartha Gautama, who chose to become a Monk. Thus, at the age of 29, he left home in quest of the source of worldly misery and underwent penance under a tree in Bodh Gaya. Buddha gained Samyak Samvodhi, or vast understanding, during his penance. In the years that followed, he disseminated the same knowledge and was known over the world as Lord Buddha.

Buddhism is not only an atheistic religion, but also a worldwide philosophy of nonviolence, injustice, and untruth. The teachings of Gautama Buddha and his followers under Shakyamuni form the foundation of this religion. Gautama Buddha is regarded as the fourth Samyak Sambuddha of our time. Buddhism is the world’s fourth largest religion, with about 350 Million followers worldwide. Nepal is also known as the “Land of Peace” since it is the birthplace of the Buddha doctrine, which is practiced all over the world. As a result, numerous countries around the world have constructed magnificent temples and monasteries in the Buddha’s birthplace today.

At the age of 80, Lord Buddha gained Nirvana. At Bodh Gaya, he attained enlightenment after a period of severe ascetic meditation. The Tripitaka is a compendium of all of Buddhism’s teachings and teachings. The Tripitaka covers the 32 physical qualities of Buddhism in great detail. There are 84,000 Gyan Sutras, with 82,000 by Lord Buddha and 2,000 by his greatest followers. The primary virtues of impermanence, misery, and selflessness are believed to be the basic principles of Buddhism. Pratitya (Samutpada) is the main philosophical principle of Buddhism.

Although every full moon is sacred to Buddhists, the moon of the month of Baisakh has special significance since it is on this day that the Buddha was born, acquired Enlightenment (Nirvana), and died, achieving Parinirvana (a Mahayana Buddhist festival that marks the death of the Buddha.).

Hindus regard Lord Buddha to be one of Lord Vishnu‘s 10 Incarnations. Gautam Buddha is also known as Asia’s Star. Because Buddha was born in Nepal, the Nepalese government has given public holidays every year on Buddha Jayanti.
