The birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha is an auspicious day, celebrated as Buddh Purnima. This is one of the most auspicious full moon days as it marks as the birth anniversary of Prince Siddhartha. He later became Gautam Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. In Theravada Buddhism, it is observed as the birthday of Prince Siddhartha Gautama (c. 563-483 BCE) attained Nirvana (salvation) under the Mahabodhi tree at Bodh Gaya, Bihar, as well as his death anniversary.

It is a significant festival celebrated with enthusiasm in countries like India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Thailand, Tibet, China, Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Mongolia, Cambodia, Singapore and Indonesia. On this day, the devotees visit temples, light candles and incense sticks, pray and offer sweets and fruits before the statue of Lord Buddha. In the prayer meeting world over, sermons on his life and teachings are done for the devotees. Devotees distribute kheer (milk porridge) in memory of Buddha, as a woman had offered the Lord the same on this day.

Here are five Gautam Buddha’s teachings that you can use in your daily life:

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you.”
“If you knew what I know about the power of giving, you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.”
“Learn this from water: loud splashes the brook but the ocean’s depth are calm.”
“The past is already gone; the future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live.”
“The trouble is, you think you have time.”

It is believed that in the evening of Buddha Purnima, the energies around us are potent. Hence, it is the perfect time to perform rituals to get rid of all the negativity, old patterns, addictions and any negative emotions that do not serve any purpose anymore.

Buddha Purnima Special Ritual
  • Take some time and write on a paper about your habits, person or situations that you wish to release and heal.
  • At late evening or night time take a shower or rinse your hands, feet and face and wear fresh clothes.
  • Sit on a mat outdoors or anywhere in your home where you can feel moon energies.
  • Burn incense sticks and place a bowl of water next to you. Take a few breaths and chant this mantra for five times:

Buddham Sharanam Gacchami
Sangham Sharanam Gacchami
Dhammam Sharanam Gacchami

  • After you are done with it, say: “Dear Lord Buddha and Moon God, please bless me on this auspicious day to release everything that no longer serves me.”
  • Now read out the list couple of times that you had prepared to release and heal.
  • After that, visualise each of those habits, person or situations getting released and healed.

While doing meditation slowly chant…

I RELEASE all negativity attached to my body, mind, soul, and aura from across lives, space, dimension, and time.

I RELEASE all the blockages that hinders my growth and progress from body, mind, soul and aura; across lives, space, dimension, and time.

I RELEASE all karmic vows and promises I might have taken intentionally or unintentionally which blocks me from achieving my goals and happy life from my mind, body, soul, and aura across lives, space, dimension, and time.
