Buddhajayanti: The Celebration of 2600 Years of the Buddha's Enlightenment
The Lord Buddha had attained enlightenment at the age of 35. Forty five years after his enlightenment, he passed away at the age of 80. It was then that the Buddhist Era (B.E.) began. Hence, when counting number of years since the Lord Buddha's enlightenment to the present, the time would be 2,600 years (45+2555).
In this regard, Visakhapuja Day in 2012 will be an important day as it marks the occasion of 2,600 years of enlightenment. There will be a celebration or ritual ceremony to worship Lord Buddha. The event is called 'Buddha Chayantee'. The name derived from the word and temptations. The word also means enlightenment and the birth of the Lord Buddha.
