The traditional Buddhist holiday of Buddha Purnima is being celebrated in India and all over the world on May 7 this year. This day holds a special significance for people from the Buddhist faith, since it is the day when Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
The day is also referred to as Vesak, Kurma Jayanti or Buddha Jayanti. Devotees pray and offer flowers at various shrines to seek peace and ward off negativity. They also chant Buddhist mantras and read from the Buddhist texts. In India, various places such as Bodh Gaya, Lumbini, Sarnath and Kushiagar are important pilgrimage sites for devotees. However, this year due to the coronavirus, travelling to pilgrimage sites would not be possible neither would it be a safe option.
