When is Buddha Jayanti:

Buddha Jayanti is held on a full moon in May each year. In 2014, Buddha Jayanti falls on May 14.

Introduction

The account of the last days of the Buddha is recorded in the Pali Canon Mahaparinibbana Sutta: The Great Passing, The Buddha’s Last Days. The other suttas are the Maha Sudassana Sutta and Janavasabha Sutta.

The Nirvana Sutra, or Mahāparinirvāṇa Sūtra (Chinese: Nièpán Jīng (涅槃經); Japanese: Nehankyō (涅槃経); Tibetan: myang ‘das kyi mdo) is a major Mahayana sutra, generally referred to by its full Sanskrit title, Mahāyāna Mahāparinirvāṇa Mahā-sūtra (or simply “Nirvana Sutra”).

The Maha Parivirvana of the Buddha took place in 544 B.C. at Kusinara in the country of the Mallas.

ITANAGAR,
May 10: To commemorate the birth, attainment of awakenment and
nirvana of Lord Buddha, the 2558th Buddha Jayanti is going to be
solemnized here on May 14 next.
Buddhists from all over the state including capital complex in huge
numbers are expected to participate in the joyous occasion of Buddha
Jayanti, reverentially, the most important day for the followers of
Buddhism.
The Buddha Jayanti Joint Celebration Committee, Itanagar, which had a
meeting at the premises of Theravada Buddhist Vihara here on Thursday,
arranged for to and fro bus service for devotees residing in Banderdewa,
Doimukh, Naharlagun and adjacent areas which will be available in their
locations at 6am sharp.
Series of programmes like, hoisting of Buddhist flag at IBCS Gompa and
TBS Temple, procession from IBCS Gompa to TBS Temple, Dhamma talks by
resource persons, and illumination of butter lamp/candle in the evening
besides presentation of cultural programmes will mark the day.
Buddha Purnima or Buddha Jayanti festival is the most sacred day in
Buddhist calendar. It is the most important festival of Buddhists, and
is celebrated with great enthusiasm. Although Buddhists regard every
full moon as sacred, the moon of the month of Vaisakh (April – May) has
special significance because on this day Buddha was born, attained awakenment and nirvana. This strange, three-fold coincidence, gives
Buddha Purnima its unique significance.




Following is UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for Vesak Day, to be observed on 13 May 2014.

Nepal to celebrate the 2558th Anniversary of the Buddha’s Life

KATHMANDU
– The 2558th anniversary of Gautama Buddha’s life, also known as Vesak
or Buddha Purnima, is going to be celebrated in Nepal with a variety of
traditional and modern festivities. Each year, the holy festival of the
birth, Awakenment and Mahaparinirvana of Lord Buddha falls on the
full moon day of Baishakh (first month of the Hindu lunar calendar). In
2014, Buddha Purnima is going to be celebrated on May 14 (Baishakh 31,
according to the Hindu calendar).
 
According
to Bhikshu Ashwini, a member of the 2558th Birthday Celebration
Committee, His Excellency Thospal Nayak, the ambassador of Sri Lanka to
Nepal, will first pay homage to the remains of Buddha at the vault of
Sri Lanka Ram Chaitanya. It will then be made open to the general
public.
 
According
to Ven. Ashwini, the sacred remains will be displayed all around the
Kathmandu Valley in a procession, especially in the Swayambhunath area,
where they will be exhibited and accompanied by chanting and music. The
temple of Ananda Kuti Vihar has traditionally carried the relic of
Buddha around the city once every four years. To consolidate these
customs, the Birthday Celebration Committee of Gautama Buddha was formed
with members from different Buddhist organizations and holds an
assembly at the Ananda Kuti Vihar every year during Buddha Purnima.
 
Bhikshu
Ashwini adds that another assembly is being organized in the presence
of Mr. Sushil Koirala, Prime Minister of Nepal. A blood donation program
will be organized on the auspicious occasion. Devotees from different
Buddhist communities (both lay and monastic) and monasteries will
participate in the religious procession round the Valley, reciting from
Buddhist scriptures. Since the committee is concerned about the
propagation and extension of Buddhism, religious discourses and sermons
on Buddhism will also be hosted.
 
Bhikshu
Kaundinya, executive member of the Lumbini Development Trust, confirms
that Lumbini will also host various local programs to celebrate Vesak.
Apart from blood donation programs, different Buddhism-related
celebrations are being organized nationwide. Vesak was observed last
year with great pomp and respect, and the Nepalese government has also
started to invest in organizing different programs to celebrate this
occasion. According to Venerable Kaundinya, the government should offer
more attention to the development of Buddhism studies and facilitate the
protection and conservation of Buddhist heritage sites.
 
On
May 22, 1951 for the first time in Nepalese history, a public holiday
was inaugurated to commemorate Veshakh and on February 19, 1956  an
announcement was made to ban killing and any other form of violence in
Lumbini on the day of Vesak. The UN system also observes a public
holiday on Vesak, revering the man who gave Buddhism to the world.

Narendra Modi belongs to Modh-Ghanchi caste, which was added to OBCs categories in 1994, says Gujarat government

Friday, 9 May 2014 - 6:10am IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: DNA


Responding to Congress charge that Narendra Modi was a ‘fake’OBC,
Gujarat government cited its two-decade old notification which says the
Modh-Ghanchi (oil-pressers) caste, to which Modi belongs, was inlcuded
in Other Backward Castes (OBCs) categories. “The Social Welfare
Department of the Gujarat Government has passed a notification on July
25, 1994  which included 36 castes as OBCs and at number 25(b)
Modh-Ghanchi caste has been mentioned to which Narendra Modi belongs.
The caste has been included amongst OBCs,” Nitin Patel, the state
government’s spokesperson, said.

The
Congress claimed on Thursday the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate
Narendra Modi doesn’t belong to any backward caste, but was in fact born
into an upper caste “Vaishya” family, that is given title of “Modh”,
for being super rich, like Mod Brahmin and Modh Bania. 

Alleging
Modi was a “fake OBC”, former Gujarat Assembly opposition leader
Shaktisinh Gohil armed with documents said Modi belonged to a Vaishya
sub-caste the “Modh Ghanchi”, a microscopic minority found only in
Gujarat. “He, in fact, belongs to the upper caste since he comes from a
prosperous business community,” said Gohil.

Gohil
further contested Modi’s claim of being a tea-seller, saying his uncle
ran a canteen at a state road transport office, where Modi used to sit
occasionally. Gohil’s disclosure came at an AICC press briefing here,
when he said, “Here comes the “fake OBC” of Gujarat after the state is
already getting a bad name for fake encounters.” 

He went on, “If Modi is speaking the truth that he used to sell tea, he should disclose from which “larri
(cart) he used to do so, and there must be still many people of his age
who used to have tea stalls in the area to vouch for his authenticity.”

Gohil
flaunted a Gujarat government resolution dated January 1, 2002 that he
had procured through the Right To Information Act (RTI) to show how Modi
usurped the rights of Other Backward Castes (OBCs) by placing his rich
“Modh Ghanchi” caste in the OBC category within four months of becoming
chief minister. 

Asked
why he was making the disclosure so late in the day when Modi has been
flaunting his OBC credentials all these months, Gohil said he was
supplied the government resolution only two days ago, after the second
RTI appeal, and he could make it to Delhi to share it with the media
only after polling was over on Wednesday in the Abdasa Assembly
by-election, which he was contesting in Gujarat.

He
explained the “Modh Ghanchis” are not of “Teli” caste like the Muslim
Ghanchis of Gujarat who enjoy OBC status. They are “Vaishyas”. He also
quoted from the authentic Gujarati lexicon ‘Bhagvadgomandal’, which says
the Modh are rich people living in a particular village. Gandhiji was a
“modh vanik”, he said. 

Modh
is an adjective showing the prosperity status of a particular caste or
community. “By acquiring OBC status for his selfish motives, Modi has in
fact encroached upon the right of members of OBC. Modi is a man born in
upper caste and indulging in low level politics. A man’s actions have
nothing to do with his caste. The best example of this was Dr BR
Ambedkar,” Gohil said.

Lok Sabha polls: Can the Exit Polls get it right in 2014? 



Exit
polls in India are notorious for getting it wrong. Recent sting
operations showing some pollsters allegedly offering to fix a poll for a
certain candidate or party haven’t helped their credibility either.



In
2004 and 2009, pollsters underestimated Congress seats, and
overestimated BJP seats. Pollsters also failed to predict seats that
were won by parties not part of the two major coalitions. In 2004, they
underestimated gains by these parties while in 2009, they overestimated 
them.


Lok Sabha polls: Can the Exit Polls get it right in 2014?
 




Only the EC knows as to who has to win with its EVMs that could be tampered.
