Vesak Poya Day, the full moon day is the holiest day for Buddhists around the world. This day is known as Vesak Poya Day. This year this day will be celebrated on May 6. This festival is celebrated on Buddhapurnima, the day Gautam Buddha was born and Mahaparinirvana was born and on this day he attained Bodhi. According to the calendar of different countries, Buddha Purnima falls on different days. In India, Vaishakh Purnima day is also known as Buddha Jayanti Day and has traditionally been accepted as the birthday of Buddha.
According to wikipedia.org, This day is being celebrated by the United Nations since 2000. The resolution to celebrate this day was passed in 1999. Since 2004, the International Vesak Summit is being organized. In 2019, it was held in Vietnam. So far this summit has been held 11 times in Thailand, 3 times in Vietnam, and 1 time in Sri Lanka. On the second day of Shukla Paksha of this Vaishakh, another Hindu pilgrimage Dham Puri also takes out the Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath.
On Vesak Poya Day, Buddhists around the world celebrate events of importance to Buddhists of all traditions: the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. As Buddhism spread from India, it was assimilated into many foreign cultures, and as a result, Vesak is celebrated in many different ways throughout the world. Some devout Buddhists will wear simple white clothes and spend all day in temples with a renewed determination to follow the Eight Precepts. In some countries, notably Sri Lanka, two days are set aside for the celebration of Vesak, and all liquor shops and slaughterhouses are closed during the two days by government order.
