Buddha Day/Visakha Puja (Buddhism)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Visakha Puja celebrates the day the Buddha was born, the day he reached his enlightenment some 35 years later, and the day of his death some 45 years after that. Buddhists believe that all three of these events took place on the day in May when the moon is full. It is an important day in the Buddhist tradition. Buddhists tend to observe the day by being generous, by listening to speeches about the Buddha, by dressing simply, and by cutting down on the amount and type of food they eat.
