Happy Buddha Purnima 2018 

Today April 30 marks the special occasion of Buddha Purnima or Vesak, which is celebrated to mark the birthday of Gautam Buddha, who later became the founder of Buddhism. Also termed as Vaishakh Purnima, Buddha Purnima is a full moon day of Vaishakh month. This day is very auspicious for Hindus and Buddhists across the world. A day before Purnima, Hindus celebrate Nrisimha Jayanti and on Pournima they observe Kurma Jayanti. Hindus worship Lord Vishnu, perform charity, fasting, hold Satyanarayan Katha and perform Havan. They throng Haridwar to have dipped in the holy river Ganga.
 
Most of East Asia celebrate Buddha Purnima, where many countries make it a public holiday too, but it is also marked in countries as far removed as Australia, Brazil and Canada. 
 
The word Purnima means full moon, and it’s used in this context because Nepalese people celebrate the date on the May full moon. It has gained this significance because Buddha was born in Nepal. 
 
The founder of Buddhism, first known as the Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Gautama Buddha and then just Buddha was born in 623 B.C, so this year he would have been 2,641 years old.
