Buddha Purnima, reverentially, the most important day for the followers of Buddhism, commemorates Lord Buddha’s enlightenment in 588 B.C and also his attainment of the highest of spiritual goals, ‘Nirvana’ in Bodh Gaya and ‘Parinirvana’ (or “final cessation”) in Kushinagara.
Alternatively called Buddha Jayanti, this day consecrates the birth anniversary of Lord Buddha who was born in Lumbini, Nepal. As the name itself suggests, Buddha Purnima is observed on a bright full moon in the Vaisakha month (April/May), a time especially suited for introspection, charity and puja.
Please join us on this auspicious day for a special Puja, to be performed in honor of the Buddha’s life and teaching, at 8PM. This is the first day of our May Yoga Teacher Training and it promises to be an auspicious, powerful and memorable evening.
