Lord Gautam Buddha showed a new path to the world with his great thoughts and teachings and made a significant contribution to bringing unprecedented change in society. Buddha’s Birthday is also known as Buddha Purnima. According to religious texts, the full moon date of Vaishakh month is celebrated as the birthday of Gautam Buddha, as it is believed that Mahatma Buddha was born on this date. Buddha’s Birthday will be celebrated this year on Monday, May 16, 2022. Gautam Buddha was the great philosopher, scientist, religious leader of India, a great social reformer, and the founder of Buddhism.
According to gyanipandit.com, Gautam Buddha was born in the 6th century BC. Maya, the wife of King Suddhodhana of Kapilavastu gave birth to a son in the forest named Lumbini. That son was named Siddhartha. Siddhartha Gautama later founded Buddhism and was called Mahatma Buddha. This festival is also considered very important for the people of the Hindu religion.
One day Mahatma Buddha had a desire to visit Kapilvastu and he took his charioteer along for a walk. Seeing four scenes on the way, he took a vow to leave home and take sannyasa. According to Hindu scriptures, Gautam Buddha is considered the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. In such a situation, apart from Lord Buddha, Shri Hari Vishnu and Lord Chandradev are also worshiped on this day.
People keep fast on the day of Buddha’s birthday. By seeing the moon on this day, the blessings of the moon god are obtained. Worshiping Lord Vishnu and Chandra Dev on the day of Buddha Purnima removes financial difficulties.
