Happy Buddha Purnima 2021: Wishes, images, quotes, status, messages, and photos: Buddha Purnima marks the birth of Gautama Buddha. This auspicious occasion falls on ‘Purnima’ or a full moon day. Buddha Purnima, also known as Vesak, is the most important festival for the followers of Buddhism across the world. This year it falls on May 26. On Buddha Purnima, the Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya is beautified with colourful decorations, and special prayers are held under the Bodhi tree, where Gautama Buddha attained enlightenment.
Many devotees visit Buddhist shrines and spend the day reciting hymns and sermons about the life of Lord Buddha, his teachings, and principles. Flowers and candles are offered to Lord Buddha’s idol. People dress up in white clothes and give kheer (a rice pudding), in keeping with a legend about a woman named Sujata who had once offered Gautama Buddha kheer on his birthday. It has become a tradition ever since.
Even though things are a lot different this year, celebrate this day by sharing these wishes with your friends and loved ones.
*May this auspicious occasion bring luck and prosperity to everyone!
*May Lord Buddha enlighten you on the path of love and truth!
*May the year be full of love, light, peace, and harmony!
