Nepali Buddha Jayanti is a special day celebrated in Nepal to honor the birth, enlightenment, and death of Lord Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama. It falls on the full moon day in the Nepali month of Baisakh, which typically occurs in April or May in the Gregorian calendar. During Nepali Buddha Jayanti, people across Nepal engage in various activities to commemorate the life and teachings of Buddha. This includes visiting Buddhist temples and monasteries to offer prayers, lighting butter lamps, and participating in meditation sessions. One of the most significant rituals observed on Buddha Jayanti is the "Bathing of the Buddha" ceremony, where devotees pour water over the statue of Buddha as a symbol of purification and renewal. Throughout the day, people also reflect on the teachings of Buddha, which emphasize compassion, mindfulness, and non-violence. Many Buddhists take this opportunity to practice acts of kindness and generosity towards others. Nepali Buddha Jayanti is not only a religious festival but also a time for cultural and social gatherings. Communities come together to celebrate the universal values of peace and harmony promoted by Buddha's teachings. It's a day of reverence, reflection, and spreading goodwill among all beings.
