*According to the Sri Lankan Buddhist tradition, Wesak Day (commemorating the birth of the Buddha, his Enlightenment and his final passing into Nirvana) falls on the full moon day of May (3rd May, 2015, or the 15th Day of the Third Month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar this year). The Chinese Buddhists celebrate the birth of the Buddha on the 8th Day of the Fourth Month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar (i.e. 25th May, 2015).
*As Buddhists over the world are cheerfully preparing for the Wesak celebration, a 7.9-magnitude devastating earthquake struck Nepal on 25th April, 2015 (Saturday).
