Every year, Vaishakha Purnima is celebrated with immense dedication and devotion by the Hindu community across the country. This significant day sees people worshipping the Moon God and Lord Vishnu, among other rituals, making it highly auspicious. In addition to these practices, people observe the Satyanarayan Vrat and Buddha Purnima on this day. As the community prepares to celebrate, here are some key aspects to keep in mind.

According to the Hindu lunar calendar, Vaishakha Purnima is the second Purnima of the year, following Narasimha Jayanti. This year, Vaishakha Purnima falls on May 23. Drik Panchang indicates that the Purnima Tithi will begin at 6:47 PM on May 22 and end at 7:22 PM on May 23.

Rituals

On this auspicious day, devotees offer prayers to Lord Vishnu and observe a fast from morning till evening, a practice known as Satyanarayan Vrat. Additionally, people worship the Moon God, offering sweets, flowers, and water. Vaishakha Purnima is also celebrated as Buddha Purnima, marking the birth anniversary of Siddhartha Gautam, who later became Gautam Buddha.

Significance

Buddha Purnima holds great significance as it is believed that Siddhartha Gautam attained enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya on this day. After a long meditation, he understood the purpose of human existence and the end of all suffering. Vaishakha Purnima is also observed as Vesak Day in many parts of the country, with public holidays declared to honor Gautam Buddha's life and teachings. Processions and colorful performances highlighting Buddhist principles, customs, traditions, and beliefs are showcased on this day.

As we gear up for the celebrations, it is essential to remember the profound spiritual and cultural importance of Vaishakha Purnima, ensuring that the rituals are performed with utmost devotion and reverence.
