Buddha Purnima History

Buddha Purnima HistoryThe decision to agree to celebrate Buddha’s birthday was formalized at the first Conference of the World Fellowship of Buddhists held in Sri Lanka in 1950.

On Buddh Purnima Day, Buddhists all over the world commemorate events of significance to Buddhists of all traditions: The birth, enlightenment and the passing away of Gautama Buddha.
