“People celebrate this day to remember Lord Buddha’s achievement as a human being, and more than that, we remember his life as an example for all of us. Having been born as a human being, we can accomplish amazing things in our life. But from a Buddhist perspective, if one had to pinpoint the most inspiring accomplishment possible for a human being, it would be the attainment of absolute freedom, absolute liberation. This is what Lord Buddha achieved  complete liberation, also known as perfect enlightenment  and it is something that any one of us can achieve. 

So therefore we celebrate this day in order to remember that, in order to remind ourselves of what each and every one of us – no matter where we come from, no matter who we are  can accomplish. So that’s why it is a special day.”
