2016 Vaishakha Purnima

All Purnima Tithis are considered auspicious among Hindus. Vaishakha Purnima is the second Purnima in the year according to Hindu lunar calendar and it comes just after Narasimha Jayanti.

All Purnima days have something special to celebrate for. Buddha Jayanti falls on Vaishakha Purnima day and this day is celebrated as birth anniversary of Gautama Buddha.

People worship Lord Satyanarayana, an extremely benevolent form of Lord Vishnu, and observe Satyanarayana fasting on Purnima day.

Many communities observe one day fast on Purnima Tithi according to their Kul Parampara. Kul Paramparas are family traditions passed from generation to generation.
