When is Buddha Purnima? Know the auspicious time, the first lunar eclipse of the year will take place on this day

Vaishakh Purnima is a significant day in Hinduism, celebrated on the full moon day of the second month of the Hindu calendar. It is believed that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi, the giver of wealth, prosperity and happiness, had descended. Additionally, it is also celebrated as Buddha Purnima, the day Lord Buddha appeared, and Kurma Jayanti, the day Lord Vishnu took the Kurma avatar to save the earth.

Vaishakh Purnima in 2023 falls on May 5th, which coincides with the lunar eclipse. It is prescribed to perform the Satyanarayan Puja and worship Lord Gautam Buddha on this day. According to Panchang, Vaishakh Purnima Tithi starts on May 4th, 2023 at 11.44 am and ends on May 5th, 2023 at 11.03 pm. The bath time is from 04.12 in the morning to 04.55 in the morning, and the time to offer arghya to moonrise is 06.45 pm. The Lakshmi Puja Muhurat is from May 5th, 2023, 11:56 pm – May 6th, 2023, 12:39 am, and the Kurma Jayanti Puja Muhurat is from 04.18 pm to 06.59 pm.

This rare coincidence of a lunar eclipse on the day of Buddha Purnima will be the first lunar eclipse of the year. It will take place on May 5th at 08.45 pm and end at 01.00 am, with the sutak period starting 9 hours before the eclipse. The duration of the penumbra will be 04 hours 15 minutes 34 seconds, and the magnitude of the penumbral lunar eclipse will be 0.95.

Bath, pilgrimage, and charity done on Vaishakh Purnima are considered very auspicious and are believed to give unending virtue. It is believed that taking a bath in the holy river on the full moon day washes away the sins of seven births and brings nectar to a person. Vat Savitri Vrat is also observed on this day, and the date for Vat Savitri Amavasya and Purnima Vrat is considered auspicious.
