Monday, May 25 - Buddha's Birthday 2015
One of the most important festivals in the Buddha Calendar, namely his birthday, his enlightenment and his passing away. During this festival devotees bring offerings of flowers, incense sticks and candles. This is to remind them that just as flowers wither and die, and incense and candles burn away, this is the true way life is. Temporary.
Many Buddhist holidays are determined by moon phase rather than date, so the dates change every year. Furthermore, the same holidays are observed at different times in different parts of the world, resulting in numerous Buddha's Birthday dates. Wesak Day is one of the most important festivals in the Buddhist calendar as it commemorates the three significant events in Gautama Buddha’s life – his birthday, his enlightenment and his passing away.
We struggled to find the right date for this festival too but it is observed on the day of the full moon in May 2015.
As you probably know we love Buddha Gifts. That's why we created a new Buddha Page with Buddha Oil Burners, Buddha Incense Tubes, Buddha Incense, Buddha Charcoal Burners, Buddha Reed Diffusers and Carved Wooden Buddha Heads. We hope they will inspire you.
Let us know if we did :)
