Buddha Purnima: History and Significance
The word Purnima means full moon, and it is used in this context because Nepalese people celebrate the date on the May full moon. Mahatma Buddha was born in Lumbini in modern-day Nepal. He was raised in the Shakya capital of Kapilvastu which is now Tilaurkot in Nepal. Gautam Buddha was a philosopher, religious and spiritual leader, and meditator. He attained enlightenment at the age of 35 under a Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya which is now in India. He delivered his first sermon at Sarnath, India. He passed away at the age of 80 in Kushinagar, India.
