Holidays & Observances: Buddha Pournami

For all the posts in this Holidays & Observances series, go here.

Prologue: I have been meaning to write a series about Holidays and Observances that we (my family and friends) follow in both India (my birth country) and USA (my adopted country). This series is dedicated to those. On a side note, perhaps I might witness some of the celebrations from other countries as well that may get their way into this series. šŸ™‚

Birth of Gautama Buddha is celebrated as Buddha Pournami on May 5th this year (2023) by all Buddhists and many Hindus across the world. It’s also the Flower Moon – May’s first full moon of the month. Festivities highlight key events of Buddha’s life – birth, enlightenment and death.

Listen to his teachings by various spiritualists. Slow down your day and meditate to reflect on your day and life. If nothing, simply donate as you can.
