Why we celebrated Buddha purnima

Vesak (Buddha Purnima, Buddha Jayanti) is a Buddhist festival that marks the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. It falls on the day of the Full Moon in April or May and is a holiday in India. It’s the most sacred festival in the Buddhist world. … Many Hindus believe that Buddha is the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, as indicated in the Scriptures.

Several other names are identified as Buddha’s wives in different Buddhist traditions, including Gopā or Gopī, M Zugajā, and Manodharā; according to the Mulasarvastivada Vinaya and several other sources, the Buddha actually had three wives, and the Jataka story quoted by Nagarjuna specifies two.

Buddha say about god

Buddhists seek to reach the state of nirvana by following the path of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, who went on a quest for enlightenment around the sixth century BC. There is no faith in a personal god. Buddhists believe that nothing is permanent or fixed and that change is always possible.

Rule of Buddhists

To refrain from taking life, that is, to kill any living creature.

To refrain from taking what is not freely given away, i.e. theft.

To refrain from misuse of the senses or sexual misconduct, i.e. overindulgence in sex or sexual misconduct.

To refrain from speaking incorrectly, that is, lying or gossiping.

To refrain from intoxicants that cloud the mind, ie drugs or alcohol

Gautama Buddha ate his last meal (either a mushroom or a pork dish) which he received as an offering from a blacksmith. Then he fell violently ill, possibly from food poisoning, and the Buddha realized that his end was fast approaching. … In modern terms, we’d say he died of food poisoning. Buddha died when he was 80 years old.
