After fourty years of enlighten one in  the same Vesak Purnima Lord Buddha attened the Mahaparinirban in Kusinara . At that time Gautam Buddha was 80 years old . So the  Vesak Purnima is coinceded three most important Day of Buddha. Then we called the Buddha Jayanti .

This year the world is preparing for the celebration to mark 2600th years of Buddha’s enlightenment and 2555th Buddha Jayanti. We received this wonderful logo from Shri Lanka with these information.
