Buddha Purnima 2022 will be celebrated on May 16. Also known as Buddha Jayanti or Buddha's Birthday, this commemoration is filled with various fun festivities and religious observances every year. Marked on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Vaishakh in most countries, the Buddha Purnima celebration is considered to be an extremely auspicious observance for followers of Buddhism worldwide.

While the exact date of Buddha's birthday varies according to the lunisolar calendars, it is celebrated in April or May every year. In India and most of South Asia, Buddha's Birthday is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Vaishakh, hence the name Buddha Purnima. It is often celebrated as an extension of the festive celebration of Vesak in South and Southeast Asia. Vesak commemorates Gautam Buddha's journey, which led to his enlightenment.
The celebration of Buddha Purnima is also different in different countries. In India, Buddha Purnima is specially celebrated in Sikkim, Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh, Bodh Gaya, Lahaul and Spiti district, Kinnaur, various parts of North Bengal such as Kalimpong, Darjeeling, and Kurseong, and Maharashtra (where 77% of total Indian Buddhists live).
