Buddha Purnima is a public holiday in most places in India, Nepal and South-East Asian countries. In India, Buddha is considered as the eight incarnations of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that Buddha achieved enlightenment and nirvana (salvation) on the same day. On Buddha Jayanti, people visit common Viharas, where Buddhists observe full-length Buddhist sutra. They dress in white and offer prayers. Buddhists do not consume non-vegetarian food. Kheer, a sweet dish is prepared on this day. They place the statue of Buddha in a basin filled with water and decorated with flowers.
