India is a great nation. Many great persons have born in this country, who are called mahaans. They tried to find the reason for the sufferings of the people, and also tried to find solution to it. This is how religions are born. Gautam Buddha is one such mahaan. His preachings are being followed not only in India, but in many eastern countries. Incidentally, Buddha's birth, enlightenment and death - all have taken place on a full moon day. This is the significance of Buddha Poornima. It must be recollected on this day, that the important preaching of Buddha is Ahimsa. The most important aspect of Ahimsa is Non-violence and loving fellow men. At a time when hatred is being spread in the name of God and religion in our country, the teachings of Buddha assumes great importance. BSNLEU conveys it's best wishes and warm greetings to all, on the occasion of Buddha Poornima.

These posters can also be printed by translating the matter into regional languages.
