History of Maghi Purnima

Buddha was established in Bianubana of Rajbari for 45 years. the last year.  At that time, he fell very ill during the rainy season.  He was 80 years old then.  After completing the Betuban varnavrata he traveled the country and gradually became the Betuban Vihara and Chapel Chaitya of Vaishali.  The chief servant said to Anand, O Anand!  Udain Chaitya, Gautama Chaitya, Saptiamar Chaitya, Bahuhuputrak Chaitya, Sarandana Chaitya of E Vaishali are beautiful.

 Full of natural beauty.  Oh, joy!  Go to Chapal Chaitya and rest.  Then Chapel happily went to Chaitya.  At this time Tathagata Buddha pointed to Ananda and said, ‘Ananda!  Tathagatas can remain in the present body for some time as self-aware if they wish.  Oh, joy!  The four Riddhipadas of the Tathagata are Bhavidita, Bahulikritta, Rathagatisdarsha, Anargal, Antiraana, Vastubhumishaddasha, Well-known, Well-known, and Timely.  Therefore, if you wish, you can stay for a long time.’ 

The Mardwara-tempted Tathagata Buddha was unable to understand the meaning of these words even with clear hints to the chief servant Ananda.  Even after the second and third hints, Ananda, possessed by death, did not understand the significance of the Tathagata Buddha’s hint.  So the Tathagata Buddha went to Chapel Chaitya in Vaishali and on the auspicious day of Maghi Purnima forbade his self-revival in a state of recollection and auspiciousness.
