Ujjain: According to Hindu calendar, the auspicious occasion of Vaishakh purnima or Buddha Purnima is falling on May 10 this year.

Veteran astrologer Pandit Anandshankar Vyas informed that the creation of nine out of 10 favourable conditions (mahayog) occurred on this particular day, making this purnima auspicious. This mahayog occurs in Ujjain in the month of Vaishakh (May) during Shukla paksha, when Sun of Aries, Jupiter in Leo and Moon of Libra meet in Swati nakshatra in Vyatipat on full Moon day. However, this year Jupiter is not in Leo, which makes the day fulfilling nine conditions out of 10. During Simhastha only six conditions were met of this mahayog on Budhh purnima which concludes the Simhastha.

As per the Hindu traditions, Vaishakh purnima holds a very high significance for making donations and a holy dip in river Kshipra. Pt Vyas said that ideally, this occasion should be celebrated from Mohini ekadashi to Budhh purnima. There is a legend goes behind this significance as lord Vishnu incarnated as Mohini and fed nectar to demigods.
