Also known as “Buddha Purnima” or simply as “Buddha’s Birthday”, Buddha Jayanti honors Lord Buddha and is one of the most sacred days of the year in Nepal. Calculated by the lunar calendar, the Lord Buddha’s birthday falls on the full moon of the fourth lunar month and is a day of great celebrations. Buddhists from all over the world travel to Kathmandu to attend the festival which includes ceremonies, prayer meetings and meditation sessions.
As the birth, enlightenment and death of Lord Buddha falls on the same day of full moon of the month of Baisakh, Buddhists around the world, including Nepal, observe Buddha Jayanti with respect and devotion to Buddha.
