In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
Happy Buddha Poornima!

Today is 2554th Buddha Jayanti, anniversary of the three major events – Birthday, Enlightenment and Nirvana in the life of Gautama Buddha, the apostle of peace and the founder of Buddhism. This is also called Buddha Purnima.
This is the most important events for the Buddhist. Followers and monks visit Buddhist monasteries and Stupas – specially Swayambhu, Maha Boudha in Kathmandu – all around the world resound with sermons, prayers and recitals of Buddhist scriptures throughout the day. They offer candles, incense, flowers and a variety of fruit to the statue of Lord Buddha.
Stupas and monasteries are decorated with the Prayer flags which is hanged for luck and happiness.
This post is specially dedicated to Buddha and Buddhahood. On this very auspicious day, we would like to write some of his quotes:
* Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
* The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
* All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
* Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
