The 2,562nd Buddha Jayanti is being watched today, longing for world peace by sorting out unique venerates, singing psalms and holding talks.
Buddha Jayanti commemorates the day Lord Buddha was conceived, accomplished edification, and kicked the bucket. It falls on the full moon day in the Nepali month of Baishakh. Buddhists all through the world commend the day paying regard to Lord Buddha.
Lovers particularly throng Lumbini, Bodhgaya, Rishi Pattan and Kushinagar on this day. These spots are the four noteworthy journey destinations of Buddhists. Lumbini is the place Lord Buddha was conceived, Bodhgaya is where he accomplished illumination, Rishipattan is where he began giving sermons and Kushinagar is where he kicked the bucket.
The Prime Minister also took to Twitter to extend his greetings, “The teachings of Lord Buddha are extremely relevant in the 21st century. His was a life devoted to alleviating suffering and removing injustice from society. His compassion has endeared him to millions. Buddha Purnima greetings to everyone!”
In his greetings, President Ram Nath Kovind recounted Gautam Buddha’s principles of non-violence, love and compassion.
“On Buddha Purnima, greetings to fellow citizens and to the global Buddhist community. Lord Buddha’s message of non-violence, love and compassion provides us the strength to work for the welfare of others. May his teachings guide us towards universal fraternity #PresidentKovind,” he tweeted.
