Every year, the first full moon of the Vaisakha month in the Hindu calendar is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Lord Gautam Buddha across the world. It is said that Lord Buddha, who was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautam, was born today. It is said that he was born at Lumbini (now in modern-day Nepal) around 563 BC.
On this auspicious day, the lord is remembered with love. This day usually falls April or May months according to the Gregorian calendar. This year we will not be able to get to the worship places due to lockdown, so here are some Buddha Purnima wishes in English which you can send to your friend and family on this day.
