Today May 14, 2014 is Vaishakh – Buddha Jayanti or Buddha Purnima. It marks the Birth, Enlightenment and Death of Gautama Buddha on the same day. I greet each and everyone on the Buddha Jayanti and them all the best in the years to come. I invoke the triple gems of Lord Buddha for all round peace and prosperity in India and the world at large.
Buddha Purnima has a special significance for me. My daughter Vaishali was born on the Buddha Purnima day in 1975. May Buddha bless her with success and prosperity?
We the people of India are indebted to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar for the revival of Buddhism in India.
