Buddha Jayanti, also known as Buddha Purnima, is a significant festival in the Buddhist calendar, commemorating the birth, enlightenment, and death (parinirvana) of Gautama Buddha. This auspicious day is observed on the full moon day (Purnima) in the month of Vaisakha, which typically falls in April or May according to the Gregorian calendar. Buddha Jayanti holds immense spiritual importance for Buddhists worldwide, symbolizing the core teachings of the Buddha and his journey towards enlightenment.

The celebrations of Buddha Jayanti are marked by various religious activities and ceremonies. Devotees gather at temples and monasteries to offer prayers, chant scriptures, and participate in meditation sessions. Many also engage in acts of generosity and compassion, such as giving alms to monks and helping the needy, reflecting the Buddha's teachings on kindness and selflessness. The day is also celebrated with cultural events, including processions, dance, and music performances, creating a festive yet serene atmosphere. Across countries like India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Myanmar, Buddha Jayanti is not only a religious observance but also a time for introspection and reaffirmation of the principles of Buddhism.
