Importance of Buddha Pournima
There are controversies about the time of Gautama Buddha’s birth and death. But many historians have dated his life between 563 and 483 BC. Gautama Buddha is said to have left royal splendor and wandered in the forest for many years and attained knowledge of the truth by doing rigorous penance under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya. After this, Lord Gautama Buddha with his knowledge created a new light in the whole world.
