Buddha Purnima is also known as Vesak or Vesakha. This auspicious day commemorates the birth, nirvana (enlightenment), and the death of Gautama Buddha.

It falls on the full moon of the fourth lunar month (month of Vaisakh), i.e. April or May.

The sacred festival of Buddhists is observed as a holiday in many countries, including India, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. Though Buddhism originated in India, it was eventually adopted by many foreign cultures, and hence Vesakha is celebrated in many different ways all over the world.

In India, Vaishakh Purnima is also known as Buddha Jayanti - which has been traditionally accepted as Buddha's birth day.

As India celebrates the festival, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also wished the citizens via social media.

On this auspicious day, send the following greetings to your family and friends:

    and money and prestige and power,
