Sambuddhatva jayanthi

Bodhgaya, The place where Buddha attained Enlightenment

Sambuddhatva jayanthi, also known as Sambuddha jayanthi, is a religious festival in relation with the Vesak. In the Buddhist world it is celebrated in several Theravada countries including Sri Lanka, Nepal and in Buddhist communities of other countries. This auspicious day is hugely celebrated in many parts of the world, predominately Lumbini, Nepal - the birthplace of Gautam Buddha. Buddha's Enlightenment is highlighted and teachings of Buddha preserved in pali canon become more popular in this period among Buddhists who follow the Theravada.
