History  
The most significant holiday for Buddhists worldwide is Buddha Purnima, sometimes referred to as Buddha Jayanti. It is observed on Thursday, May 23, 2024, the first full moon day (Purnima) of the Vaisakha month in the lunar calendar (usually April or May in Gregorian). The birth of Buddhism's founder, Siddhartha Gautama, is honoured on this holy day. Buddhists use Buddha Purnima as an opportunity to consider the Buddha's teachings, which place a strong emphasis on the path of meditation, compassion, and moral behaviour as means of putting an end to suffering. Encouraging acts of charity, meditation sessions, and prayers are practiced by many, perpetuating the teachings of the Buddha. He sat beneath a Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India, after years of searching, vowing not to leave until he discovered a means to put an end to human suffering. It was at this point that he became enlightened and became the Buddha, the "Awakened One."

Buddhists all across the world observe this holy day by going to temples, meditating, thinking back on the teachings of the Buddha, and engaging in acts of kindness and compassion. It's an occasion to reflect on the Buddha's road to enlightenment and make an effort to heed his advice on harmony and compassion.
