Today is Budh Poornima which is Buddha’s birthday. It is a Buddhist festival that is celebrated in most of East Asia commemorating the birth of the Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Gautama Buddha, and was the founder of Buddhism. According to Buddhist tradition and modern academic consensus, Gautama Buddha was born c. 563–480 BCE in Lumbini (currently located in Nepal), and raised in the Shakya capital of Kapilavastu (courtesy: Wikipedia).

In Tamil culture, the same day is called the Chitra Pournami which is the full moon day of the Tamil month of Chithirai which is again today, the 7th of May 2020.

Today is full moon day and today’s moon looks so fabulous.
